A beautifid fall morning buerrupted by a near tragedy. 

On September 30, 1992 at 7:17 a.m. the Wilmington Fire and Police 
Departments were the first to respond when a tanker truck loaded with 
11.200 gallons of gasoline overturned on Inters tau Route 93, Northbound, 
South of Concord Street. 

The Wilmington Fire Department was in control of the scene until the fire 
hazard was alleviated and at that time the Department of Environmeraal 
Protection assumed control of the on-going cleanup effort. 

Other town departments responding included the Board of Health, 
Conservation Commission and Department of Public Works.

The "Mission Statement for the Town of Wilmington" is as follows: 

"The Town of Wilmington, as a municipal corporation, exists in 
order to deliver a wide range of municipal services to those who 
live, work or own property within the borders of Wilmington; and 
in order to make this community a good place to live, to work, and 
to raise and educate a family, those services must be responsive 
to the needs of the people. They must be effective and efficient. 
Principles of honesty, fairness, dependability and compassion must 
govern the actions of the officials and the employees of the Town. 
Those who work for the Town as employees or as members of boards, 
committees and commissions are recognized as its most important 
resource and the key to its success in serving the people of 
Wilmington. " 

Endorsed by the Board of Selectmen May 22, 1989.

BOARD OF SELECTMEN 



In 1992 our town faced many challenges which tested our resilience, yet in 
many ways brought out the compassion, caring and competence of the community. 

As municipal finances are stretched, allowing the town to continue to provide 
quality services, consolidation has become standard practice. The Planning 
and Conservation functions have been consolidated under one director. The 
Water and Sewer Department has become a division of the Department of Public 
Works under the able direction of Robert Palmer. These consolidations have 
generated thousands of dollars in savings in addition to providing greater 
continuity and flexibility in utilizing personnel resources. 

The Sewer Advisory Committee was appointed by the Town Manager, with the Board 
of Selectmen's approval, to investigate alternatives for equitable funding of 
sewer projects. The Committee has held several meetings during the year in an 
effort to reach consensus on the means to fund future sewer construction. 
Clearly sewer services are beneficial in some sections of Wilmington to 
protect our groundwater. However, the construction costs and MWRA costs to 
treat and dispose of sewage have made connecting into sewage systems 
prohibitively expensive for homeowners. 

A long standing problem with significant public safety ramifications has been 
addressed. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) has 
consistently used the grade crossing at Middlesex Avenue in North Wilmington 
to allow passengers to board and exit from the Haverhill commuter train. This 
action shut down vehicular traffic including emergency vehicles in that area 
of town. Based upon an agreement worked out between the town and the MBTA, a 
platform was constructed just north of the grade crossing. Boarding now takes 
place from the platform. Emergency vehicles are no longer blocked at the 
crossing. 

As part of the State's redistrict ing requirements, Wilmington was shifted from 
the 7th Congressional District to the Sixth District. Newly elected 
Congressman Peter Torkildsen will represent Wilmington. We look forward to 
having a positive and productive relationship with Congressman Torkildsen. 

Good news came from the Commonwealth as they informed the town that we are 
recipients of a $600,000 Massachusetts Small Cities Grant for housing 
rehabilitation, affordable rental units, first-time homebuyer assistance and 
employment assistance job training. This grant provides a tremendous 
opportunity for qualified Wilmington homeowners to make much needed 
improvements to their homes. Individuals struggling to find employment will 
receive guidance in the job search process as well as assistance in coping 
with the pressures of unemployment. 

The town is also the recipient of a $20,000 Strategic Planning Grant from the 
State. This, together with a $10,000 contribution from the Wilmington 
Redevelopment Authority, will allow the town to obtain guidance in developing 
a long-term plan for the redevelopment of the Route 38 corridor from the 



-2- 



Woburn line to the Tewksbury line and for assisting private property owners 
including Sweetheart Plastics with their efforts to sell their property to 
businesses seeking to bring jobs and services to Wilmington. 

The Board wishes to commend the efforts of the several town departments which 
were involved in responding to the gasoline spill on Interstate 93 and the 
Fire Department for their efforts to contain the blaze at the former Church 
Street Hardware/Drapery Boutique. Both incidents could have resulted in much 
greater personal, property and environmental losses, were it not for the 
outstanding efforts from the many people involved. 

The town's financial resilience has been tested over this past year. First, 
the town lost the appeal of an abatement of real estate taxes awarded to 
Avco/Textron. A subsequently negotiated settlement saved the town about nine 
hundred thousand dollars. Secondly, an arbitration case resulted in the 
requirement that the town pay $308,000 to Massachusetts Refusetech, Inc., the 
operator of the trash incinerator used by Wilmington for solid waste disposal. 
In spite of these issues, the town was able to go nearly two years without any 
short-term borrowing and was successful in maintaining its "A" bond rating 
after a careful review by Moody's Investment Service. 

The Selectmen wish to acknowledge the fine work of Town Manager, Michael A. 
Caira, Assistant Town Manager, Jeff Hull, and the various town department 
heads, along with all the town employees for their continued efforts to 
provide quality service to the citizenry of Wilmington. Finally, we want to 
thank you, the citizens of Wilmington, whose volunteerism and community 
involvement enhance our quality of life and make our town a desirable place to 
live.

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington: 

The success of any organization is dependent upon a willingness to focus 
attention on improving every aspect of its operation. For town government, 
1992 was a year in which significant internal changes were implemented. These 
changes were designed to effectuate operational efficiencies enabling local 
government to meet its responsibilities in the face of declining resources. 

Conventional wisdom says that, "If you don't want to be criticized, don't say 
anything, do anything or be anything." During the year 1992, town government 
was anything but conventional. Casting aside a "business as usual" 
philosophy, municipal government in Wilmington continued to re-examine and re- 
evaluate its method of delivering town services. 

The two most dramatic changes occurred in the areas of community development 
and public works. The town merged its Planning and Conservation Departments 
under a single director and reorganized the Water and Sewer Department as a 
division of the Department of Public Works. These changes enabled the town to 
maximize staff resources, reduce expenditures and improve services to both the 
homeowner and the business community. 

The town refocused its energy in the area of community development in an 
effort to provide more affordable housing opportunities, improve the quality 
of residential development and address economic development needs. The town 
benefitted from nearly $1.2 million in community development funding by way of 
a Massachusetts Small Cities Grant, a Community Development Action Grant, a 
State Strategic Planning Grant and the establishment and initial funding of an 
Affordable Housing Trust Fund. Each of these programs represent economic 
opportunities for Wilmington residents while demonstrating the town's ability 
to provide services without taxing the limited resources of its citizens. 

Jurisdiction for town planning is now properly in the purview of the Planning 
Board. This clarification of jurisdictional authority is designed to 
eliminate sub-standard residential developments and ensure equality of service 
to every taxpayer. The town has been pro-active in its approach to economic 
development by pursuing quality businesses and encouraging their relocation to 
Wilmington. Wilmington welcomed new businesses such as Medco Containment 
Services, Woodbriar of Wilmington and Hans Kissel while witnessing the 
expansion of good business neighbors such as Casa di Fior and Koch Membrane 
Systems. At years end, town departments were working closely with potential 
buyers of the Sweetheart Cup warehouse. 

In February of 1992 the town reorganized its public works program by 
establishing the Water and Sewer Department as a component of the Department 
of Public Works. The consolidation has enabled the town to better allocate 
its resources and to eliminate duplication of services. First year savings 
have amounted to approximately $170,000. 

Over the past three years municipal government has established a conservative 
spending trend. A recent report from the Department of Revenue indicates that 
of the three hundred and fifty-one Massachusetts cities and towns, only 
eighty-four communities spent less money through the fiscal year ending June 
30, 1991 as opposed to the prior fiscal year. Not only was Wilmington among 



-4- 



these communities, having expended $1.2 million less than the prior fiscal 
year, but Wilmington ranked three hundred and seventeenth in the percentage 
(increase/decrease) rate of general fund spending. 

On October 1, 1992, Moody's Investment Service released its municipal credit 
report on the Town of Wilmington. In confirming the town's bond rating, the 
report stated "financial operations have stabilized. .. since 1990 town 
management has significantly reduced departmental spending and implemented an 
austerity program." 

The report, after restating the financial initiatives undertaken since June of 
1990, concluded that "it appears that the achievement of operating stability, 
which is integral to long-term credit quality, will likely result from these 
conservative initiatives and expectations." Among the initiatives implemented 
were a fiscal austerity program, which further reduced fourteen full-time 
positions from the municipal payroll, and an aggressive tax collection program 
that coupled with the town's financial cash flow monitoring system, resulted 
in no short-term borrowing during all of 1992. 

Despite reduced payrolls and reduced spending much was accomplished. Voters 
at the Annual Town Meeting approved the purchase of five police cruisers, a 
dump truck with catch basin cleaner, two fifteen passenger vans for the 
Elderly Services and School Departments and an additional handicapped 
chairlift for the West Intermediate School. In addition, the bleachers at the 
high school gymnasium were motorized. The town reconstructed the high school 
practice/utility field and committed to the construction of a new softball 
field at the High School and an expanded youth football, baseball and softball 
complex at the Town Hall field. 

Public works crews finished the reconstruction of Aldrich Road complete with 
new sidewalks. Several streets were resurfaced and a pedway was constructed 
for the Shawsheen School to the Shawsheen Commons neighborhood. Town forces, 
working with the Wilmington Rotary Club, assisted in the construction of a 
walking trail around Rotary Park. 

Two new uses were found for the Swain School. Concerned citizens established 
a food pantry to serve Wilmington residents and the Police Department 
renovated second floor space to establish a new headquarters for the Detective 
Bureau. In North Wilmington the traffic gridlock created by commuter trains 
was resolved by the construction of a boarding platform. 

Two major financial challenges were met by the voters at the Annual Town 
Meeting. First, a motion was adopted to pay for the final judgment reached in 
the AVCO abatement case; and second, voters approved a measure to facilitate 
the refunding of bonds to refinance the solid waste resource recovery facility 
used by member communities of the North East Solid Waste Committee. 

Town employees once again met the challenge of providing quality services 
despite dwindling resources. Their immediate and professional response to the 
Route 93 gas spill exemplified a workforce fully capable of meeting any 
emergency. Crews from the Fire, Police and Public Works Departments worked 
effectively to avert a major disaster. 

There were many other noteworthy accomplishments during the year. Forty 
Wilmington youngsters participated in the town supervised summer youth jobs 
program. The Board of Selectmen supported Wilmington parents who conducted a 
local aid to education postcard campaign. The Board established an Audit 
Advisory Committee and signed collective bargaining agreements with the four 
municipal unions. Final design work was completed on the Route 125/Andover 
Street signalization project and the Concord Street/Woburn Street traffic 
light project moved closer to completion. The Wilmington Centre Village 
Historic District gained acceptance into the National Register of Historic 
Places and in conjunction with the Commission on Disabilities the town 
launched an ambitious campaign to meet the mandates of the Americans with 
Disabilities Act. 

Reorganization and retirements led to several personnel changes. Lynn Duncan 
was appointed the first Director of the Planning and Conservation Department. 
Water and Sewer Superintendent Paul Duggan retired following thirty-one years 
of service to the town and was replaced by Paul Niman. Anthony Krzeminski, 
the dean of Massachusetts assessors, retired as Wilmington's Principal 



Assessor having served in that position since 1966. He was replaced by 
Humphrey "Skip" Moynihan. Several other long term employees retired in 1992 
including Firefighters Edward Fuller and Richard Fuller, Public Works General 
Foreman Andre LaFave, Water and Sewer Department Foreman Rocco Yentile, 
Department of Public Works Equipment Operator William Flaherty, Public 
Buildings Secretary Arlene Rybicki and veteran Police Officer James Cuoco. 
Each of these individuals served the town with dedication and distinction. 

The entire Wilmington community mourned the passing of Police Lieutenant James 
"Jay" Palmer whose courage, commitment and compassion served Wilmington for 
more than thirty-one years. He was a dedicated law enforcement professional 
who epitomized service before self. 

Archibald Macliesh said that "There is only one thing more powerful than 
learning from experience and that is not learning from experience". 
Wilmington is fortunate to be able to draw on the diversified experience of 
talented and energetic town officials, employees, volunteers, business and 
community leaders and residents. Enriched by that experience, Wilmington 
government is poised to continue its efforts to improve the quality of life 
for each of its citizens. 

Respectfully submitted.

Board of Registrars 



In accordance with Section 1, Chapter 3 of the Town By-Laws, meetings of the 
Board of Registrars were held on the second Monday of each month for the 
registration of voters and to conduct business. Under Chapter 616 of the Acts 
of 1958, these meetings were open to the public and press, and were so posted 
in the Town Hall. 

The Board held registration sessions as mandated by Massachusetts General 
Laws, Chapter 54, Section 64, Chapter 53, Sections 43 & 63 and Chapter 51, 
Sections 26, 28, 29 and 30, all in accordance with the Town Charter and 
Inhabitant Bylaws Revised of the Town of Wilmington. 

This was a busy election year. The Board also met many times for meetings and 
public hearings relative to the Special Recall Election. 

The Town Clerk attended most of the Town Clerk Conferences in order to keep up 
with the changing election and census laws. 

The calendar year of 1992 had a total of 11,703 registered voters of our 
listed 18,140 inhabitants. 

The Board of Registrars wants to thank all citizens of the town who returned 
their census forms in 1992 without delay. A true census is an asset to the 
Town .

career .

The people of Wilmington will continue to be as important to me in my 
retirement as they have always been during my firefighting career.

their support and cooperation.

Police Department 



In accordance with the Bylaws of the Town of Wilmington, I hereby respectfully 
submit the annual report on the activities of the Wilmington Police Department 
for the year of 1992. 

The enclosed statistical report represents the total for all crimes, 
complaints and incidents reported during the year 1992; and, for the most 
part, the corresponding enforcement efforts of the Wilmington Police 
Department. During 1992 the total number of complaints and incidents reported 
to the Police Department decreased slightly from 11,323 incidents in 1991 to 
10,270 during 1992. For the most part, these decreases were spread throughout 
the various crime categories and service related incidents. However, a number 
of the serious crime categories decreased significantly during 1992. Breaking 
and entering into homes and buildings decreased by 11%, from 99 incidents in 
1991 to 88 during 1992. Armed robberies decreased from 6 incidents during 
1991 to zero (0) during 1992. Totals for assault & batteries decreased by 10, 
from 52 in 1991 to 42 in 1992. Motor vehicles stolen in Wilmington decreased 
by 15% from 67 in 1991 to 57 in 1992. 

Motor vehicle accidents and traffic congestion continues to be a serious 
community problem. During 1992 the Police Department experienced a 7.5% 
increase in the motor vehicle accident rate. In 1992 motor vehicle accidents 
increased by 45 accidents from 597 accidents in 1991 to 642 during 1992. This 
slight increase is viewed as a leveling off from the significant decrease over 
the past six (6) years and does not appear to be a trend. The accident rate 
for 1992 is still 754 accidents less than the 1985 high of 1,396. 

The Police Department continued to place a high priority on the enforcement of 
motor vehicle violations during 1992. During 1992 the department cited 3,344 
motor vehicle violations. This represents an increase of 19% from the 
violations cited during 1991. The following are the totals for some of the 
major areas of concern: speeding violations 1,373; operators license 
violations 266; unregistered and uninsured 126; and, miscellaneous violations 
1,298. Arrests for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol 
were unchanged with 61 arrests in both 1991 and 1992. Arrests for crimes 
other then motor vehicle offenses during 1992 totaled 531. During 1992 the 
Police Department continued to place a high priority on alcohol and drug 
related offenses. As a result, arrests for liquor law violations totaled 207 
and there was a total of 22 narcotics arrests during 1992. In addition to 
motor vehicle and other criminal arrests, the department placed a total of 180 
persons under protective custody. A total of 1,038 persons were taken into 
custody by the Police Department during 1992. As a result of the enforcement 
efforts of the department, the fine monies returned to the Town of Wilmington 
from the Woburn District Court during 1992 totaled $101,232; and, the motor 
vehicle fine monies returned to the town from the Registry of Motor Vehicles 
totaled $210,762. 

The department makes note of personnel changes during 1992. The Wilmington 
Police Department and the Town of Wilmington lost one of its most dedicated 
police officers during 1992. Lieutenant James T. Palmer passed away on July 
26, 1992. Lt. Palmer served the Police Department and the Town of Wilmington 
for more than 31 years. He was a rigid, tough, and dedicated Police Officer, 
a Cop's Cop. He loved the work that he did, and while doing it, he made a 
tremendous contribution to his community and his fellow man. His dedication 
and commitment to law enforcement and public safety set an example for so many 
of us to follow. He demanded 110% from himself every time he put on his 
badge, whether as a Patrolman, Sergeant or Lieutenant. The death of Lt. 
Palmer will leave a void in this department and this community which can never 
be filled. "Jay" Palmer was one of a kind. 

During 1992 Officer James Cuoco retired from the Police Department after 28 
years of service. He will be missed greatly by the members of the Police 
Department and the community as a whole. Jim, we all wish you health and 
happiness in your retirement.

Emergency Management Agency 



The Wilmington Emergency Management Agency (WEMA) is housed in the basement of 
the "Old Town Hall," at 219 Middlesex Avenue (opposite the Congregational 
Church), where we share a most cordial co-existence with the Wilmington 
Council of Arts. WEMA's goal, in fact its very existence, is geared to supply 
needed services to the citizens of Wilmington. These services cover a wide 
spectrum of needs from the furnishing of personnel and mobile units ecpiipped 
with radio, telephone, and packet (short-wave version of teletype), which have 
been utilized in the past to assist the annual walk-a-thon committee and to 
provide limited supplies and shelter capabilities, as well as an underwater 
dive team for recovery work. 

The agency continues to have a very active radio communications group under 
the supervision of Herb Nickerson. The base station for our agency is at the 
N.Y.N.E.X. tower site located at the junction of Rte. 129 and Rte. 38. 
Wilmington is the net control for 19 communities, handling and relaying 
emergency communications between our sister communities and Area I 
Headquarters in Tewksbury. Wilmington has the distinction of being the back- 
up for Area I. In the event Area I is unable to carry out their 
communications role, Wilmington will assume the function as emergency 
communications liaison between the 85 communities that comprise Area I and the 
Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency located in Framingham. 

The dive team remains a viable element of our agency largely through the 
efforts of Bill Gable and Bob LaRivee. At present there are 4 fully equipped 
divers. 

Each year an attempt is made to form and equip a rescue team that would act as 
a much needed adjunct to Town emergency personnel during a large scale 
operation and each year budget constraints make such an undertaking 
prohibitive. This year is no exception. 

The Wilmington Emergency Management Agency extends its thanks and appreciation 
to all who have supported its growth and development. Thank you for your many 
hours of volunteer work, without it, we could not function.

Planning/Conservation Department 



Organization and Function 

1992 represents the first year of operation of the consolidated Planning/ 
Conservation Department. The department has continued to provide a high level 
of staff support to the Planning Board, Conservation Commission and Housing 
Partnership, and assistance to town residents throughout the past year. The 
Planning Board is responsible for administration of the Subdivision Control 
Act, recommendations on site plan review and zoning revisions, and specific 
planning studies. The Conservation Commission is responsible for wetland 
protection in accordance with the state Wetlands Protection Act. Goals 
include environmental education and open space preservation. The goal of the 
Housing Partnership is to provide affordable housing for Wilmington residents 
through local initiatives and work with private developers. The activities of 
each board are described in more detail below. 

The Planning/Conservation Department also took a leadership role in other town 
projects and activities, including the Massachusetts Small Cities Grant 
Program, the Strategic Planning Grant Program, disposition of town-owned land 
and transportation projects. The Planning/Conservation Director serves as Co- 
Chair of the Community Development Team and Property Review Board. In 
addition the Director is designated as the Transportation Improvement Project 
(TIP) Coordinator to help ensure that Wilmington transportation priorities, as 
established by the Board of Selectmen, are designated for funding. 

The Planning/Conservation Department is administered by Lynn Goonin Duncan, 
Planning/Conservation Director. Former Conservation Administrator Eileen 
Chabot resigned effective January 1992. Anne Gagnon was hired in April 1992 
to serve as Environmental Specialist and provide technical assistance to the 
Conservation Commission. Secretarial support is provided by Senior Clerk 
Linda Simoneau and part-time Conservation Secretary Jean Labrecque who joined 
the department in September 1992. 

Grant Programs 

The Town of Wilmington was awarded state grants from both the Massachusetts 
Small Cities Program and the Strategic Planning Program. With the scarcity of 
resources available to the town, these grants are a significant boon to 
address specific, identified needs. 

The Massachusetts Small Cities Program award totaled over $600,000. Most of 
the funds will be used to directly benefit Wilmington residents, from home 
improvements to job training. The four components are housing rehabilitation, 
creation of accessory apartments, employment assistance and first-time 
homebuyer assistance. Program staff will be hired in early 1993 and the 
program will get underway shortly thereafter. 



-25- 



The Route 38 Corridor Land Use Redevelopment Study was funded by the state 
through the Strategic Planning Program. The Wilmington Redevelopment 
Authority contributed $10,000 as a local cash match to the $20,000 grant. The 
purpose of the grant is to address economic development needs of the town 
through an innovative redevelopment plan for Route 38 and the Sweetheart site, 
while maintaining and enhancing the quality of life. 

The Strategic Planning Task Force has been appointed by the Town Manager to 
oversee the study and includes representatives of the Board of Selectmen, 
Planning Board, Redevelopment Authority, Chcunber of Commerce, business/ 
property owners and town technical staff. A planning consultant firm will be 
selected in January 1993. 

In addition, installation of a new water main and appurtenances on Shawsheen 
Avenue and Hopkins Street funded through the Community Development Action 
Grant (CDAG) Progreim was completed. 



PLANNING Board 



New development activity increased significantly in comparison with 1991 as 
ten subdivision plans were submitted and construction of several large 
subdivisions. Apache Way, Andover Heights and Phase II Whitefield Elm, got 
underway. The increase in subdivision review is also partially due to the 
fact that development of paper streets now comes under the subdivision review 
process. This change in process has gone smoothly and ensured comprehensive 
review by all appropriate departments. The increase in activity is evidenced 
by the more than tenfold increase of Planning Board filing fees, $7,334.00 in 
contrast to $600.00 in 1991. The filing fees are turned over to the General 
Fund Account. 



The Planning Board members are appointed by the Town Manager for five year 
terms. Planning Board members serving throughout 1992 were Richard Longo, 
Carole Hcimilton, Austin Rounds and William Hooper, Jr. James Diorio was 
appointed to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Eric Judson. 
William Hooper also serves as the representative to the Board of Appeals and 
the North Suburban Water Supply Protection Advisory Committee. Carole 
Hamilton serves as the Board's representative on the Housing Partnership. 

Subdivision Control 



Under the authority vested in the Planning Board of the Town of Wilmington by 
M.G.L. Chapter 41, Section 81-Q, the Board reviewed and took action on the 
following subdivision plans:

The Board reviewed six (6) applications for Site Plan Approval and recommended 
revisions and conditions to the Town Engineer as appropriate.

CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

The Conservation Commission is a seven member volunteer board which 
administers and enforces the state Wetlands Protection Act and its 
regulations. The commission reviewed 91 new applications in 1992, a 33% 
increase over 1991 even though the economy was slow. This may be attributed 
to the increase in Requests for Determinations of Applicability; a one page 
form that homeowners may use when working within 100 feet of a wetland (the 
"buffer zone"). "Working" includes clearing and grading as well as actual 
construction. Environmental Specialist Anne Gagnon will be glad to answer any 
wetland questions you may have and is available to check your property if you 
are unsure whether you have to file. 

Six small parcels of town-owned land totalling approximately 3/4 of an acre 
were transferred to the Conservation Commission. The parcels are located 
behind Cunningham Street and contain wetlands associated with Lubbers Brook. 
One donation of land (2.2 acres) was gratefully accepted by the Commission 
involving land off Chestnut Street donated by Thelma Grassia. 

Conservation issues are coordinated closely with other town boards and 
offices. This includes review of Board of Appeals submissions, comments on 
projects through the Community Development Team, and a new review of building 
permits for small projects. In addition, the Commission concentrated on 
reviewing projects currently under construction to ensure compliance. 

Commission members include: Gary Mercer, Lynne Guzinski, John White Jr., 
William MacKinnon and William Gately who was welcomed as a new member at the 
beginning of 1992. The Commission lost two members who had devoted much of 
their time. Margaret Imbimbo submitted her resignation in November with 
Dennis Poltrino submitting his in December. The Commission appreciates their 
dedication.

Housing Partnership 



The Housing Partnership had several significant successes in 1992: 

o An accessory apartment bylaw was approved by Annual Town Meeting. 

o Four town-owned parcels were approved by Annual Town Meeting for use as 

affordable housing sites, 
o A Housing Trust Fund in the amount of $40,000.00 was established, 
o Funding for a first-time homebuyer program was awarded through the 

Massachusetts Small Cities Program. 

The 1992 Annual Town Meeting approved the accessory apartment amendment to the 
zoning bylaw as proposed by the Housing Partnership. The purpose is to enable 
more residents to create accessory apartments, thereby encouraging more 
affordable and diverse housing. A significant change is that homeowners may 
now create accessory apartments in homes built up to 1992. The previous bylaw 
required that the home be built prior to 1965. 

The Partnership has expended significant energy this past year in initiating 
the affordable housing development process on four town-owned parcels on 
Denault Drive and Avon Street. The Partnership has held public meetings with 
the neighborhoods for the purpose of establishing development guidelines. A 
maximum of seven single family homes are proposed, rather than duplexes or 
triplexes, in order to be consistent with the character of the neighborhood. 
Through the effort of the Director of Public Health and the Town Engineer, 
percolation tests were conducted on most of the sites. With the finalization 
of the "Developer's Kit" at the end of 1992, the Partnership intends to move 
ahead to solicit proposals from builders and developers in early 1993. 

A goal established in 1991 was the establishment of a Housing Trust Fund. 
With a contribution of $40,000.00 by a local developer, the Partnership was 
able to achieve this difficult goal. The purpose of the fund is to enable the 
town to respond to specific affordable housing opportunities for local 
residents. For exaimple, several years ago the town was offered a home for no 
cost, with the exception of the cost to relocate the structure. The 
opportunity was lost because no funds existed for such a purpose. No 
commitment of funds has been made to date. 

In addition, the Partnership has continued to work closely with the developer 
of Silverhurst Avenue to create two affordable housing units. The Regulatory 
Agreement was executed by the state, the town and the developer to ensure that 
the units remain affordable. Initial construction activity began in 1992. 
The units should be completed and occupied in 1993. 

The Partnership continues to monitor the progress of Shawsheen Commons. The 
lottery for Phase II was conducted in February; fourteen first-time homebuyers 
were selected, including eight families from Wilmington. 

The Housing Partnership looks forward to the implementation of the Small 
Cities Program which will provide financial assistance toward downpayment and 
closing costs for first-time homebuyers. Many potential buyers cannot save 
these funds due to the high cost of renting. 

Despite the economic downturn and slight decrease in housing costs, 
homeownership remains an impossible dream for many Wilmington residents. Do 
you have a child or know someone who's recently married and would like to 
settle here, but can't? Among your friends, are there any Wilmington 
teachers, police officers, firefighters or other municipal employees who are 
forced to commute from distant communities because Wilmington, their employer, 
IS simply beyond their means? The Wilmington Housing Partnership continues to 
work toward the goal of providing housing opportunities for moderate income 
residents. The Housing Partnership members are appointed by the Town Manager. 
Members throughout 1992 included Carole Hamilton, Mark Haldane, Robert 
DiPalma, Gregory Erickson, Raymond Forest, Odette Kent, Bruce MacDonald, James 
Russo, Thomas Siracusa and Rev. Michael Stotts. Rocco DePasquale was 
appointed to the Partnership this past year. The Partnership meets the second 
Thursday each month and welcomes interested residents to attend the meetings.

Redevelopment Authority 



In 1992 the Wilmington Redevelopment Authority gave the Town a $10,000.00 
grant to enable Wilmington to receive designation for an additional $20,000.00 
Strategic Planning Grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Three 
members of the Authority served on the Task Force for the planning study. 

Early in 1992, the Authority completed its study of alternative proposals for 
roadway improvements for Route 38 from Middlesex Avenue to the Tewksbury town 
line. The Conceptual Plan, prepared by Authority engineering consultants. 
Fay, Spofford and Thorndike, was presented for review and approval to the 
Board of Selectmen, the District 4 Office of the Massachusetts Highway 
Department and to numerous civic and business groups throughout Wilmington. 
In 1993 a general public meeting will be held to present the plan to the 
Wilmington community for comment and suggestions. 

Besides the work undertaken on the Town Center Project, the Town of Wilmington 
continues to reap the benefits of its investment in the Jewel Industrial Park 
more than 20 years ago. At the end of 1992, there were 14 businesses 
operating in Jewel Park employing a total of 973 workers. Based upon Fiscal 
Year 1992 data provided by the Assessor's Office, the total assessed value of 
the park was $15,206,200 and the annual tax revenue to the Town of Wilmington 
totalled $321,154.95. 

The officers of the Authority are as follows: Vaughn R. Surprenant, Chairman; 
Charles N. Gilbert, Vice Chairman; Sidney R. Kaizer, Treasurer; Patricia F. 
Duggan, Assistant Treasurer; and Dennis Volpe, Secretary. 



Recycling Advisory Committee 

The Town's drop-off recycling program continues into its third year stronger 
than ever. Once again, due to the enthusiastic participation of Wilmington 
residents, we have surpassed our goal of removing 900 tons of trash from the 
waste stream. In fact, the Town has recycled 915 tons of material. This 
represents an increase in recycling of 153 tons in 1991 and 362 tons in 1990. 
The savings achieved from this effort after deducting progrcun costs is 
$36,318. 

In December, the Committee added NYNEX telephone books to the list of items 
eligible for recycling at the drop-off center. The recycling drop-off center, 
located off of Route 38 near the Wilmington/Woburn line, now accepts: 
newspaper, glass (brown, green, clear), aluminum cans, plastic milk and juice 
containers, corrugated cardboard, deposit bottles and cans, white goods 
(washers, dryers, water heaters, stoves, refrigerators, etc.), leaves and 
Christmas trees. Used motor oil and car batteries are accepted at the Public 
Works Garage on Andover Street. 

One of the regulations contained in the new Clean Air Act prohibits the 
discharge of freon into the atmosphere. Freon is contained in the cooling 
system found in such items as air conditioners and refrigerators. As a 
result, residents seeking to dispose of such white goods must first have the 
freon removed by an individual or company qualified in freon removal. A 
"Freon Free" tag must be placed on the item before the Town can collect it. 
Interested residents may obtain the names of such vendors by calling the 
Public Works Office or the Town Manager's Office. 

In December, the Recycling Advisory Committee presented its recommendation for 
an enhanced recycling program. The Town has a contract with the Northeast 
Solid Waste Committee (NESWC) to dispose of its solid waste at an incinerator 
in North Andover. Unfortunately, the terms of the agreement offer only 
limited incentives to reduce the amount of solid waste sent to the facility. 
In light of this problem and given the inability to obtain firm prices for 
curbside collection, the Committee was unable to definitively recommend a 
curbside recycling program or expanded drop-off recycling program. Instead, 
the Committee recommended that the Town solicit proposals for curbside 



-45- 



collection of recyclables. The recommendation specified service options to be 
included in the request for proposal. The Committee's primary concern is for 
the Town to comply with the state's recycling mandates and to encourage a 
greater level of recycling. 

The Recycling Advisory Committee wishes to extend its thanks to Robin Stratton 
who resigned from the Committee in September. Her writing skills will be 
greatly missed. In addition, as always, the Committee thanks the Town Manager 
and Board of Selectmen for their continued support and we especially thank the 
residents of Wilmington for their continued commitment to recycling. 

The drop-off center is open every Saturday from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. 



Board of Health 



The Board of Health consists of three members appointed by the Town Manager 
for 3 year terms. Serving on the Board throughout 1992 were Dr. James 
Ficociello D.D.S., One Fletcher Lane, Mr. Joseph Paglia, 101 Nichols Street 
and Mr. Milton Calder, 14 Hobson Avenue. The Director of Public Health is 
Gregory Erickson R.S., C.H.O., and the Public Health Nurse is Ann FitzGerald, 
R.N. The Animal Control Officer is Ellen Davis. The secretarial staff (which 
is shared with the Building Commissioner and Board of Appeals) consists of 
Joan Goulet and Toni LaRivee. In addition, Michael Saraco, R.S., has been 
contracted as needed to conduct a portion of the field inspections on a part- 
time basis. 

Field Inspections include restaurants, retail food stores, cafeterias in the 
industrial buildings and in the schools, mobile food trucks, ice cream trucks,

Housing Authority 



The Wilmington Housing Authority, organized in 1951, operates under the 
provisions of Chapter 121B of the Massachusetts General Laws, Section VIII, 
24CFR (Code of Federal Regulations); Chapter 30B of the State Procurement Law, 
and State and Federal Codes of Ethics. All state and federal programs are 
audited on an annual basis. A five-member Board of Commissioners, consisting 
of four elected and one state appointed member, oversees the Authority's 
policies and procedures. The Executive Director is charged with the 
administration of these procedures. 

The Authority, originally consisting of 40 units of housing, is now providing 
affordable housing for 72 seniors and 13 (705) fcunilies and includes con- 
ventional housing owned by the Authority. As always, the Authority gives 
first preference for housing to Wilmington residents. 

The engineering designs for the renovation of the pipe system at Deming Way 
Apartments have been submitted to the Executive Office of Communities and 
Development (EOCD) for approval, and the work is expected to commence in early 
1993. 

The state leased housing program has been severely curtailed and the Authority 
is seeking other ways in which it can provide housing for both senior citizens 
and families. 

The senior citizen population of 80 years of age and over is the fastest 
growing population today, and this poses a problem in providing enough housing 
for those seniors in failing health who cannot live totally independently but 
who should not be placed in a nursing home. The Wilmington Housing 
Authority's tenants, in conjunction with Minuteman Home Care, receive home 
care and other social services in an effort to assist them to live 
independently. However, more is needed, and another program currently being 
pursued by the Authority is housing for frail elders, which would provide 
housing, meals, medical care and other services, while allowing seniors to 
maintain private quarters. 

The Authority continues to operate its programs in a financially sound manner, 
and it currently does not accept any subsidy from the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts .

Historical Commission 



The Wilmington Historical Commission was pleased to announce the official 
acceptance of the Wilmington Centre Village Historic District into the 
National Register of Historic Places. This district encompasses 110 acres and 
contains some of Wilmington's finest nineteenth century residential and 
institutional buildings. Also included is the town's first burying ground, an 
early nineteenth century animal pound, and a concentration of school buildings 
spanning the nineteenth to mid-twentieth centuries. 

In recognition of the above, the Historical Commission, with the help of the 
Public Buildings and Public Works Departments, placed a sign recognizing the 
district at the junction of Middlesex Avenue and Church Street. On July 4, 
1992, a certificate recognizing the designation of this district was presented 
to Mark Haldane, Chairman of the Board of Selectmen by Carolyn Harris, 
Chairman of the Historical Commission. 

The National Register is the official list of historic properties throughout 
the United States. With the inclusion of our Centre Village District in the 
National Register, a long-standing goal of the Historical Commission was 
finally achieved. 

The Commission, with the help of the Public Buildings and Public Works 
Departments, placed a sign recognizing the town's first burying ground 
established in 1731. The Scalekeeper ' s Office, also at this location, has 
been renovated by these departments. Plans are underway by the Historical 
Commission and Adele Passmore to create a historic exhibit in this building 
highlighting the Centre Village District. 

Captain Larz Neilson continues to work on an illustrated collection of his 
articles on the history and folklore of Wilmington. Through his manuscript, 
future generations will be able to enjoy Larz's tales of Wilmington's past. 

Our historic plaque program is being finalized. Shawsheen Tech is nearing 
completion of 100 historical plaques which will recognize our many historic 
public and private buildings and sites throughout the Town. The Commission 
anticipates that the plaques will be ready for distribution in the spring of 
1993. 

The Commission once again arranged for George Washington to attend the 
Wilmington Minutemen's Colonial Weekend in May. 

In continuing with our goal to educate the young in the history of our area, 
the Historical Commission purchased a VCR and two historic tapes: "To Keep 
Our Liberty" and "Historic Concord." These will be featured at the Harnden 
Tavern in conjunction with educational tours through our historic tavern. 

The Colonel Joshua Harnden Tavern, thanks to the work of our town departments, 
is now illuminated by flood lights during the evening. 

The Harnden Tavern continues to be open on the first Sunday of each month from 
2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. Informative tours are offered free of charge by the 
tenants. Josh and Lisa Winant. New artifacts on display at the tavern are an 
old trunk with clothes believed to have belonged to the Swain sisters, a 
crockery inkwell, and two turkey quills. 

The Commission thanks the Friends of the Harnden Tavern for their hard work 
and dedication in putting on events to enrich the residents of Wilmington. A 
successful Strawberry Festival was held in the spring. Their Harvest 
Festival, in celebration of the Christopher Columbus Quincentennial, was 
honored to have Captain Larz Neilson as a guest lecturer; describing his 
extensive Wilmington arrowhead collection. This festival was also highlighted 
by the sale of the first harvest of herbs from the Tavern's herb garden I 

Membership in the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Historic 
Massachusetts have been renewed.

The Wilmington Historical Commission continues to work closely with other 
branches of town government to preserve and make citizens aware of 
Wilmington's many historic assets. The Commission is most thankful to the 
Board of Selectmen, Town Manager, Public Works and Public Buildings Depart- 
ments for their support and hard work. 

The Commission meets on the second Monday of the month in Room 4 of the Town 
Hall at 7:30 P.M.

Carter Lecture Fund 



On May 7, 1992 at 8:00 P.M. the Carter Lecture Fund Committee presented the 
"New, New Orleans Jazz Band and All That Jazz," conducted by Larry Zuk at the 
Herbert Barrows Auditorium. 

This seven-member band can be seen on stage at area concerts with their jaunty 
straw-boaters and red vests and, as they say, it is not a group of 
professional musicians, but a group of musical professionals. They play for 
fun, not profit. 

On the piano is a family therapist, the fellow on trombone is an obstetrician, 
on clarinet an orthodontist, on drums a high school teacher, the trumpet an 
aerospace scientist and on the tuba, the leader, Larry Zuk a retired engineer 
and adult educator. 

Mr. Zuk also presents a narrated program demonstrating the development of jazz 
through the years. The programs cover the early era of New Orleans jazz, the 
Roaring Twenties, the Dixieland jazz revival of the 1940 's and the sources and 
sounds of Dixieland as it is played today. 

The audience expressed enthusiastic wishes for a return performance in the 
near future. 

It was a great evening for fun, toe-tapping, and audience participation.

Public Buildings Department 



The Public Buildings Department is responsible for maintaining the town's 
investment of over $53 million dollars in assessed value of town-owned 
property. It is the responsibility of this Department to keep buildings safe 
for school children, school personnel, town people and town employees. With 
the consolidation of Department of Public Works and the Water Department we 
now provide maintenance when called upon for the Water Department buildings. 
Highlights of projects completed during 1992: 



* Voting machines progreimmed for elections. 

* School buildings were prepared for a successful opening in September. 

* Handicap chairlift elevator installed at the West Intermediate School. 
Access now available from first floor classrooms to second floor 
classrooms. 

* Prepared Bathhouse at Silver Lake for June opening. 

* A new 150 KVA transformer was installed and wired at the Shawsheen 
School . 

* High School Gymnasium was prepared for our Annual Town Meeting. 

* Set-up lighting for July 4th activities. 

* Motorization was installed for bleachers at the High School Gym. 

I gratefully acknowledge the support of the Board of Selectmen, Town Manager, 
Town Departments, School Administration and all the employees of the Public 
Buildings Department for their continued help and co-operation in making 1992 
a productive year. 



The Wilmington Recreation 
Department, in its 22nd year 
with a full-time Director, 
continued to meet new 
challenges while delivering a 
comprehensive slate of leisure 
opportunities for the citizens 
of Wilmington. 

Although the Recreation 
Department is relatively 
small, with only one full- 
time employee, it represents 
the second largest industry in 
the nation. In fact, 
Americans spend about 12 
percent of their personal 
income on recreation. 

The Recreation Commission 
consists of five volunteer 
citizens appointed by the Town 
Manager. This board functions 
in a policy making and 
advisory capacity to the 
Director.

The Recreation Commission and Director keep in mind the following departmental 
objectives as they plan and conduct recreation programs throughout the year: 

to provide opportunities for self expression 
to develop a sense of personal worth 

to provide activities that allow for personal achievement 

and accomplishment 
to provide activities that are fun and enjoyable 
to provide physical activities which are new and different, 

offering a certain amount of challenge to participants 
to teach skills in various activities that will have carryover 

value in later life 
to provide a healthful and diversified program of recreation 

activities in an attempt to meet the needs and interests 

of the people being served. 

Our total funding comes from a variety of sources. User fees and donations 
heavily supplement the town funded budget which was decimated by the effects 
of Proposition 2 1/2 many years ago. Volunteers always play a key role in 
providing two dollars worth of service for every dollar spent. We also 
receive much help from local clubs and organizations. Some of these 
invaluable contributors are: Rotary, Lions Club, Kiwanis, Chamber of 
Commerce, Wilmington Town Employees Association, Tewksbury /Wilmington Elks, 
Police Association, Pop Warner, Custodial Union, Sons of Italy, Ametek 
Employees Good Neighbor Fund, Woburn District Court, Analog Devices, Stelio's 
Restaurant, F & R Auto Supply, Dunkin Donuts of Wilmington and Burlington, 
Wildside Sports, McDonalds, Burger King, Rocco's, Auxiliary Police, Camp Forty 
Acres, The Townsend Family, Jack Cushing, The McCowan Family, Re/Max Casalot, 
Miles AGFA, Pepsi Cola, Daywins Ice Cream Parlor, Mac's Ice Creaun and Ray 
Lepore. 

The Recreation Department is always involved, in varying degrees, with many 
recreation oriented groups. In this nature we serve as a quasiconsulting 
agency. We also loan recreation equipment to families and groups of all types 
for various functions. We program use of the Shawsheen Tech pool for scout 
and other groups. 

Our basic programs are: Santa's Workshop, Horribles Parade, Special Kids 
Christmas Party, Christmas shopping in New York City, Spring Trip to New York 
City, Basketball League, Men's Gym, Swimming Lessons, Swim-A-Cross, CPR, First 
Aid, Punt, Pass and Kick Contest, Gymnastics, Ladies Fitness, Cinema 
Discounts, other Commercial Recreation Enterprise Discount Coupons, Sesame 
Street Live at Boston Garden, Special Needs Programs, Boat Cruise to 
Provincetown, Florida Discounts, T-Ball, Easter Egg Hunts, Circus Tickets at

Other groups that offer leisure type programs in Wilmington are: Little 
League, Council on Aging, Youth Hockey, Pop Warner, Figure Skating Club, Men's 
Softball, Square Dancing, Youth Soccer, Tennis Club, July 4th Committee, 
Council for the Arts, Scouts and Campfire. Schools and churches round out the 
active recreation picture. 

There is an obvious lack of commercial recreational facilities in Wilmington, 
such as bowling centers and movie theaters. The town also lacks agencies to 
serve our youth such as YMCA's, YWCA's, Boys' and Girls' Clubs. The addition 
of the skating rink is a great plus. This void stresses the importance for 
town support of this department's various leisure oriented programs. 



Veterans' Services 



Veterans' Services is governed by the General Laws of Massachusetts, Chapter 
115 as amended, with strict compliance to this chapter, the rules and policies 
of which govern the disbursement of aid. 

Benefits are for the needy veteran and his immediate family who have been 
subject to unforeseen needs. Final approval of benefits comes from the 
Commissioner of Veterans' Services, Boston, Massachusetts. 

Total expended for aid to veterans and their families for the entire year was 
$19,204.61. The balance of the first six months of 1992 from previous 
appropriations was $474.80. Total appropriated funds for fiscal year 1993 for 
veterans aid was $15,000. 



Money expended by 
the Veterans' 
Administration 
directly to the 
veteran population 
in Wilmington 
exceeded 
$1,350,000 in 
benefits for the 
fiscal year ending 
June 30, 1992 
which represented 
the amount of tax 
dollars not 
required to be 
expended for those 
who, because of 
circumstances, 
find it necessary 
to apply for aid.

Library 



The Annual Report of the Memorial Library with its accompanying compilation of 
statistics for 1992 is submitted herewith. 

It is a challenge to write the Annual Report. Reports for the past decade 
have been reviewed. Nineteen ninety-two was not vastly different from its 
predecessors. It was not a year of dramatic events or unusual happenings; it 
was again preoccupied with financial support and budgetary matters. The 
Library did its job; stayed within its budget; and, continued to fulfill its 
mission of providing basic access to educational, informational and 
recreational books and material. 

The Library completed its fifth year as a participant in the Merrimack Valley 
Library Consortium, and membership continued to be a wise and sound 
investment, and absolutely essential. 

The Library's Reference Department responded to hard times by providing 
manuals on resume composition, job hunting techniques, regional employment 
guides, and personal finances. It subscribed to a monthly newspaper of 
openings in not-for-profit organizations, and expanded its collection of 
corporate profiles and career materials. 

The Library's Children's Department responded to its huge increase in after- 
school reference demands. With volunteer help, its Pre-School Story hours 
were increased. The heavy circulation within the Department experienced yet 
another surge. 

The Library's Technical Services Department was severely impacted by the 
resignation of Mrs. Doris Carbone in August. Mrs. Carbone had eight years of 
commendable service. The Carbones left Wilmington to relocate in 
Pennsylvania. The Department now has two full time vacancies; it now 
functions with one full- time Technical Assistant, one part-time Clerk, and 
one part-time Professional Librarian. 

The Library continued to operate fifty-six hours weekly during the Winter and 
forty-eight hours during the Summer in compliance with Massachusetts Minimum 
Library Service Standards. Adequate funding, flexibility, and staff 
dedication made this possible. The entire staff did far more than just insure 
that the doors remained open; they insured that the Library functioned without 
finding itself in limbo. The year 1992 closed with the submission of a 
"Maintenance of Effort Level Budget" for FY 1994. Nineteen ninety-three opens 
with the hope that the Library will not experience erosion of this sustained 
effort, or suffer adversely in its ability to function.

Elderly Services Commission 



The year 1992 continued the 
predicted rapid increase of 
elder citizens throughout the 
country. This has become a 
problem for the government and 
those of us trying to meet the 
many services needed for the 
aging population. 

With the help of dedicated 
part-time employees, all 
seniors seeking our help had 
their needs met. The part- 
time employees assisting me 
are: Margaret Ready, Respite 
Care Servicer; Mary Harvey, 
Minibus Driver; Two Meals 
Drivers and a Senior Aide from 
Minuteman Home Care 
Corporation. 

This year, with the failing 
job market, we saw more and 
more of our older workers 
taking their retirement, to 
open a job for a younger , 
worker. Unfortunately for our Senior Citizen Exercise Class, 

seniors, retirement was not 
what they had expected. 

Trying to replace the hours they worked, with other activities has been 
difficult. Loneliness, depression and medical problems took a toll on many. 
We were thankful for those who took advantage of the Senior Citizen Center, 
getting involved with other seniors helped them to adjust to their retirement. 

For many in 1992 finances were a problem. Last year we received many calls 
for part-time help, fuel, SSI, food stamps, medicaid, low-income housing, and 
legal help. Spending so much of their retirement income on medical care, 
nursing care for a spouse or themselves and prescription drugs left them 
little for fuel, food and household bills. 

We received many calls on physical, mental and financial abuse, beatings, 
withholding medications and being forced to turn money and property over to a 
caregiver. The majority of abuse cases reported were as a result of abusive 
treatment by a child, grandchild^ attorney or a close friend. 

Many counseling sessions were on children losing their jobs, moving back to 
the parent with all their family. Trying to cope with these household changes 
at the age of seventy and older is very difficult. 

Going into the homes this year we found many older people abusing themselves 
by over medicating on prescription drugs and over indulgence of alcohol. The 
reasons given were the living changes when a child and their family moved in, 
elder abuse, financial burdens and medical problems too heavy to carry. 

On the good side in 1992, we were very pleased with the large increase of 
seniors coming into the center to become active in the many classes we have 
implemented for them, that is: Art, Dance, Exercise, Crafts, Ceramics, 
Nutrition and Shop. All learning a hobby or activity that will keep them 
involved. Many others came to intermingle with seniors through socializing 
at a therapeutic social, bingo, whist, game room activities, exercise room or 
only to drink a cup of coffee in the kitchen. 

We also became aware this year of many more of our older seniors living alone 
in their home. Our Respite Care Servicer made a visit to the homes and found 
seniors in their seventies, eighties or nineties trying to care for themselves 
after placing a spouse in a nursing home or the passing of a spouse. Those 
who had never married were found ill and very lonely. All of these seniors 




-60- 



had no transportation available to them while having a variety of medical 
problems. We were able to transport some by minibus. Our Respite Care 
Servicer found others needing medical attention, took them to doctors, 
remained with them for the doctors instructions, had prescriptions filled and 
made them comfortable. This type of service was given on a daily basis. 

With so many cases of cancer and kidney problems this year, the minibus driver 
was kept busy transporting seniors to cancer radiation treatments and kidney 
dialysis, along with other medical and elderly related appointments. 

The meals drivers were kept busy traveling many miles a day bringing hot meals 
to shut-in seniors. 



With the help of Analog Devices and many senior volunteers we made the 
holidays a little happier by delivering over 300 catered holiday dinners to 
homebound seniors. 



As Director of Elder Services, I met the needs of our seniors utilizing all 
the programs funded under the federal, state and municipal branches of 
government. Those were: Social Security, Medicare, SSI, Fuel, Medicaid, Food 
Stamp, Protective Services, Homemakers, Visiting Nurse Association, Mental 
Health, Day Care, Surplus Commodities, Attorney Generals Legal Services, 
Family Counseling, Elderly Housing, Board of Health, and Home Sharing. 

In 1992 we received 7,707 telephone calls for services and information. 

Other services rendered through the Elderly Services Department were: 



Transportation to medical and other elderly 

related travel 6,469 

Meals on Wheels to shut-ins 12,973 

Meals served at the congregated lunch site 5,493 

Respite care services given to handicapped seniors 762 
Special holiday dinners to our homebound-Analog and 

Kiwanis 475 

Applications for fuel, weatherization, oil burner repairs 156 

Total participation in all health and activity programs 18,702 

Kitchen socialization throughout the year 12,313 

Surplus Commodities 576 



To the following we extend our thanks for funds,

programs and doing odd jobs at the center.

Council for the Arts 



In 1992 the Wilmington Council for the Arts brought to this town an 
intellectual pleasure in art appreciation. From its center in the historic 
and gracious "Old Town Hall" which dates from 1845, the Council sponsored art 
exhibitions and demonstrations, lectures, concerts, and art classes, lending 
to this community a rich dimension in cultural and artistic perception. 
Weekly music rehearsals continue in the Arts Center by the Merrimack Valley 
Chapter of "Sweet Adelines." Probably the most satisfying effort by the 
Council is their sponsoring of art classes, taught by qualified professional 
artists for a nominal fee. These classes are filled to capacity and generally 
there are three a week, one in the evening, one in the afternoon, plus one on 
Saturday morning. This diversified schedule enables many to participate. The 
Wilmington Council is in part supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council 
(formerly the MA Arts Lottery Council) whose purpose is to raise funds to be 
used for community arts. Their objective is to promote cultural resources, to 
insure the continued contribution of these resources to local communities, and 
to involve as many citizens as possible in some aspect of cultural activity. 

Budget reductions have necessitated the MCC making only one annual monetary 
allocation to local arts councils rather than two as in the past. Therefore, 
Wilmington's allotment has been cut in half so that applications for grants 
were accepted for only the fall cycle. Out of twelve applications, five were 
approved and two PASS (Performing Arts Students Series Program) were granted. 
The five approved applications were comprised of an annual pass to the Museum 
of Fine Arts as distributed by the Wilmington Memorial Library, three school 
workshops, and the grant requested by the Council to permit their continuation 
of the Arts Center: programming, classes, art exhibitions and demonstrations, 
art purchases and upkeep. PASS grants to two current stage productions 
allowed 744 elementary school children to attend live stage productions at a 
nearby theater.

The Twelfth Annual Art Exhibition held over two days, June 27 and 28 of 1992 
was an outstanding success. It has now become a popular tradition of the 
Fourth of July weekend. Here at the Arts Center families and fellow 
townspeople gather, former residents come "back home" for the holiday, the 
merits of the exhibition are discussed, and a warm sense of togetherness is 
felt. Dan Ballou, Sr. won the John D. Brooks Award, which is given to a 
Wilmington artist who has shown the most promise and progress in his work. 

Patricia Sullivan won First Prize in watercolor; David Maison won Second Prize 
in watercolor; and Third Prize in watercolor was won by Phoebe M. King. 
Honorable Mention went to Mary Saija. 

In Oils, Ed Manzi of Somerville won First Prize; John Belville won Second, 
Third Prize went to Barbara Johansen; and an Honorable Mention was won by 
Andrea Houser and an Honorable Mention was also awarded to Ellen Lefavour. In 
Mixed Media, Walter J. Pingree won First Prize, Second Prize went to 
Marguerite McKeever, and Third Prize in this medium as well as the Most 
Popular Vote was won by Carolyn C. Cupp. 

Photography awards were as follows: First Prize to Bryan Borgal, Second to 
Barbara Glines, and Third to Linda Molloy. In the Students Exhibition 
(students who have taken advantage of the Art Center's classes) Robin Caseley 
won both First and Third Prizes for her watercolors, and Ruth M. Laider won 
Second Prize for her watercolor. 

The show was judged by three distinguished artists: 

CLAIRE BATLEY of Reading, a professional graphics designer with Tool and 
Design, experience in government and private industry, active in the Reading 
Art Association and Reading Artists Guild. 

GERTRUDE DOBBINS of Reading, watercolorist and calligrapher who was educated 
in Germany and is a member of the Society of Scribes and Illuminators of 
London and the Concord Scribes and Reading Art Association. 

ANN L. RIBBS of Woburn, an active member of the Woburn Artists' Guild, the 
Lexington Arts and Crafts Society, and Reading and Winchester Art 
Associations. 

During the year four live art demonstrations were presented, with in each 
case, an enthusiastic audience. In January, Louise Anderson, popular teacher 
of art classes at the Center, did a beautiful Boston skyline in watercolor; in 
March, Claire Batley, graphic designer, demonstrated with colored pen and 
pencil; in September, Roberta Thresher presented a demonstration of landscape 
watercolor; and in October, Shirley Winslow, also a teacher at the Center, 
gave a demonstration in pastel portraiture using her 16-year old daughter as a 
model . 

In November Milton artist, Elva S. Proctor, provided a 3-hour workshop showing 
how she approaches a painting, pointing out some little known techniques. It 
was informative and enjoyable. 

A concert in May featuring the celebration of Memorial Day in Wilmington was 
exuberantly received by a capacity audience. Maybelle Bliss was at the piano 
with both Aloha Jaynes of New Hampshire and Carolyn Stanhope of Wilmington at 
the organ. Music from the Civil War era and swing music of the 1940 's as well 
as more serious compositions were professionally rendered. Group singing was 
heartily enjoyed. 

A concert during the Christmas season, eagerly anticipated, with the same 
performers had to be canceled due to a minor accident to Mrs. Bliss. 

In 1992 the Council acquired a significant painting of the Harnden Tavern by 
Bruce Anderson. Louise Anderson's watercolor of a Boston skyline as seen from 
the Boston Public Garden was generously donated by her and most gratefully 
received by the Arts Council. We are also grateful for all donations from 
Wilmington citizens.

The assistance provided by town departments is appreciated. This includes 
Roger Lessard and Bob Palmer and the employees of the Public Buildings and 
Public Works Departments in installing such features as a sensor light and a 
new outdoor sign. The service is always provided with professionalism and 
goodwill. We thank you all. 

Throughout the year two young men contributed their support to the Arts 
Center, and it is hereby acknowledged: Mr. Bruce Jope, a Council member, 
professionally hangs each exhibition. Much work is entailed, and he does this 
by himself. Mr. Eric White, although not a member, has given many hours of 
hard manual work to support the varied activities of the Arts Center. We 
appreciate it and thank you. 

Officers of the Council for the Arts are: Elizabeth White, Chairperson; Edith 
Michelson, Vice Chairperson; Anne Buzzell, Treasurer; Mary Orner, Recording 
Secretary; and Frances D. Keough, Publicity/Corresponding Secretary. 

The Council is grateful for the support of the people of Wilmington, the Board 
of Selectmen, and the Town Manager.

Metropolitan Area Planning Council 



The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) serves as the regional planning 
agency for Wilmington and 100 other cities and towns in the Greater Boston 
area. Utilizing MetroPlan 2000 as its broad policy framework, MAPC in 1992 
formally adopted the housing, land resources and transportation elements of 
the plan, developed a Capital Investment Program (CIP) to examine public 
infrastructure investments in the region and initiated the Concentrated 
Development Center (CDC) nomination process. 

MAPC continued to support Wilmington's subregional group, the North Suburban 
Planning Council (NSPC) , facilitating review of the CIP, the land resources 
protection element of MetroPlan 2000 and CDC analysis. Presentations were 
also made to NSPC on the Route 128 buildout and land use analysis. MAPC staff 
developed aquifer, zoning, land use, potential sources of contamination and 
zoning/overlay district maps for Wilmington as part of the North Suburban 
Groundwater Protection study and facilitated meetings to resolve the easterly 
break-in access at the proposed Industri-Plex interchange in Woburn. 

MAPC's transportation planning efforts focused upon the implementation of the 
Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA) and the 
reclassification of roads for federal funding purposes. Maps of these 
proposed functional classifications were provided to the member communities 
and comments were requested. MAPC developed and distributed the regional 
Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) for fiscal years 1993 through 1995 and 
offered two information sessions in July and December for local communities in 
order to receive feedback on local priorities. 

In 1992 MAPC also implemented a joint services initiative designed to educate 
and inform Wilmington on new and cost-effective ways to do business. 
Municipal information network systems, service sharing, cooperative purchasing 
and regional dispatch opportunities were explored. 

MAPC began an Overall Economic Development Program (OEDP) in 1992 that is 
expected to result in substantial new investments to the region from the 
Economic Development Administration, as well as other federal and state 
sources. 

MAPC's housing activities in 1992 included the provision of technical 
assistance on the National Affordable Housing Act, including the preparation 
of local Comprehensive Housing Affordable Strategies (CHAS), the HOME Program 
and the formation of housing consortia. MAPC also participated in EOCD ' s 
Housing Policy Commission, supported the Housing Bond Bill and advocated a 
State CHAS consistent with MetroPlan 2000 and beneficial to member 
communities. 

Data Center services to communities included the development and distribution 
of Community Employment Forecasts used in long-range highway, transit, water, 
and sewer planning; sponsorship of the Boston Area Census User's Conference 
featuring workshops on census data applications, reviews of major demographic 
patterns and information on how to use the 1990 census information; 
development of the community profiles, which is a two-page summary of the 
initial 1990 data; and an analysis of the FY-93 state budget to illustrate the 
impact of the local aid cuts on MAPC communities in relation to the remainder 
of the state.

Department of Public Works 



In accordance with the By-Laws of the Town of Wilmington, I hereby 
respectfully submit the Annual Report on the activities of the Wilmington 
Department of Public Works for the year 1992. 

The divisions of the Department of Public Works are: Highway, Tree, Cemetery, 
Parks & Grounds, Engineering, Rubbish Collection and Disposal. In February 
the Town Manager reorganized the Water & Sewer Department as a division of the 
Department of Public Works. The coordinating of all the activities of all 
divisions allows the town the optimum use of manpower, equipment and materials 
which will help to control cost. 

HIGHWAY Division (658-4481): 

All regular highway maintenance work was carried out during the year, such as 
sweeping streets, installing street and warning signs, patching streets, 
cleaning catch basins, cutting brush along the roadsides, picking up trash 
along our roadsides, painting and replacing guardrails, repairing broken 
curbing, painting safety lines and crosswalks on streets, etc. 

Chapter 90 Construction; The reconstruction of Aldrich Road and the 
construction of sidewalks on the east side from Shawsheen Avenue to the 
Billerica line, a distance of 6,740 feet, has been completed. The following 
streets are being resurfaced with Chapter 90 funds: Chestnut Street from 
Burlington Avenue to the Woburn line for a distance of 11,480 feet. Hillside 
Way from Chestnut Street to the Burlington line for a distance of 2,230 feet 
and Butters Row from Chestnut Street to Route 38 for a distance of 3,577 feet. 
The base course of hot top has been applied and the finish course will be 
applied in the spring. 

Drainage: Drainage systems and culverts were installed, repaired or extended 
at the following locations: Andover Street, Shawsheen Avenue at Canal Street, 
Shawsheen Avenue near Ferguson Road, Columbia Avenue, Concord Street, Longview 
Road, Woburn Street, Hamlin Lane, Taplin Avenue at Parker Street, Jones 
Avenue, Middlesex Avenue near Shady Lane Drive and Moore Street. 

Snow & Ice Removal: The Highway Division recorded 22.87" of snow. Snow &: ice 
removal is a very expensive and major function of the Department of Public 
Works in trying to keep our roads as safe as possible during the winter 
months. 

Tree Division (658-2809): 

The Tree Division carried out all regular maintenance work such as trimming, 
cutting, spraying and removing trees. We removed 53 roadside trees that were 
dead or interfered with public safety. Hornet nests were removed upon request 
from residents. The Town Common was illuminated with a fine display of 
Christmas lights again this year. 

Dutch Elm Disease: We had to remove 9 Dutch Elm diseased trees. 

Mosquito Control: The town is a member of the Central Massachusetts Mosquito 
Control Project. With the regional approach we are able to provide our town 
with good, environmentally sound and cost effective mosquito control. The 
three basic mosquito control methods are source reduction, larviciding and 
adulticiding. 

CEMETERY DIVISION (658-3901): 

All regular maintenance work was carried out throughout the year, such as 
mowing grass, weeding, trimming, resetting grave markers, foundations for 
monuments were poured, etc. 

DPW employees made and installed a new fence along Wildwood Street.

All regular maintenance was carried out throughout the year such as cutting 
grass, trimming shrubs, marking ballfields for baseball, softball, football, 
field hockey and soccer. Also, all fields and parks were fertilized. The 
High School track was resealed and repainted. 

The utility field at the High School was reconstructed with sod and an 
underground irrigation system. When the field is completed in the spring, a 
girls Softball field will be included. 

A pedway was constructed from Shawsheen Commons to the Shawsheen School for 
the school children. We also assisted the Rotary Club with the construction 
of a walkway at the Rotary Park. 

Engineering Division (658-4499): 

The Engineering Division assisted town departments, boards and commissions 
with engineering related projects, such as, but not limited to: 

Highway Division - With solution to drainage problems and other engineering 
related work. 



-90- 



Planning Board - Subdivisions - Reviewed subdivision plans and made 
recommendations to the Planning Board and inspected subdivision roadway 
construction. 

Rubbish Collection and Disposal (658-4481); The contract for rubbish 
collection and disposal is a function of the Department of Public Works. If 
homeowners have any questions or complaints, please call the above number. 

This year, which marks our third year of recycling, 914 tons were recycled. 
I would like to thank the Recycling Advisory Committee and all the volunteers 
for all their help this past year. Also a big "Thank You" to all the 
homeowners who brought their recyclables to the drop off center at the North 
Woburn Line. 

Water & Sewer Division (658-4711): 

Paul Niman was appointed in March as the new Water & Sewer Superintendent. 
Michael Woods was appointed Assistant Water & Sewer Superintendent in July 
after the resignation of Harvey Adams. 

The Water & Sewer Commission underwent significant changes in 1992. Noel 
Baratta became Chairman and Jonathan Goldfield and Neil Waisnor were appointed 
Commission members. We would like to take this opportunity to thank former 
Commissioners Arthur Smith and James Ring for their dedicated service. 
Jonathan Goldfield and Neil Waisnor were appointed to replace them. 

Water; The Hillside Way water storage tank was cleaned and painted both 
inside and out completing the tank painting project started in 1991. The 
altitude valve which controls the elevation in the tank was also replaced to 
insure proper operation of the tank. 

The water main rehabilitation project started in 1991 was completed. Work 
included the installation of new 8 inch water mains to replace existing 2 inch 
mains in Lawrence Court, Hamlin Lane, Longview Road, Pleasant Road, Baland 
Street, Lockwood Road, Kirk Street, Suncrest Road, Ledgewood Road, Hilltop 
Road, Meadow Lane, Glenview Road, and Ridge Road. Streets were paved full 
width upon completion. The project was paid for, in part, by a Water System 
Rehabilitation Grant from the Department of Environmental Protection. 

Construction of water mains and appurtenances in Shawsheen Avenue and Hopkins 
Street was completed. Work included the installation of a 12 inch main in 
Shawsheen Avenue to replace the existing 6 inch; installation of an 8 inch 
main in Hopkins Street to replace the existing 6 inch, and full width paving. 
The project was funded by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Communities 
and Development (EOCD) under the Community Development Action Grant (CDAG) 
Program. 

Work began on the development of a Graphic Information System (GIS) for the 
town. This project will develop a new mapping system for the town which will 
be able to be used by all town departments. The first phase undertaken by 
this contract is the preparation of a digitized base map with overlays of the 
water system, sewer system, and assessors maps. 

Town Park, Butters Row #1, and Chestnut Street #1 wells were cleaned and 
rehabilitated. 

The granular activated carbon (GAC) was replaced in the Butters Row Water 
Treatment Plant. This filter material removes impurities in the water as well 
as taste and odors. 

A water audit/leak detection survey was started. Work includes verifying the 
accuracy of the meters for all large industrial users as well as listening for 
leaks on all hydrants and valves. The intent of this program is to eliminate 
any wasted water and insure all users pay their fair share. The project is 
funded, in part, by a grant from the Department of Environmental Protection. 

Water Protection Services of Brighton, Massachusetts was hired to perform 
testing of backflow prevention devices and surveys of all 

industrial/commercial facilities. This is part of a Cross Connection Control 
Program which protects the water system from contamination from private usage. 



-91- 



In the spring a comprehensive flushing program was performed on the entire 
water system. This program removes sediment in the mains and results in 
improved water cjuality. 

The water rate for 1992 remained $2.56 per 100 cubic feet. 

Sewers; The MWRA assessment continued to increase in 1992 causing the sewer 
rate to increase to $4.27 per 100 cubic feet of water usage. The septage 
disposal rate was also increased to $60 per 1,500 cubic feet. 

With the defeat of funding for the Northeast Sewer Interceptor project in 
1991, the Town Manager formed a Sewer Finance Advisory Committee to 
investigate and recommend future funding mechanisms for sewer projects. 

The 30 inch sewer interceptor flowing under Route 38 was cleaned following a 
blockage. Routine inspections and maintenance will be performed to prevent 
this problem in the future.

The Department of Public Works makes note of personnel changes during 1992. 
Paul Duggan, Superintendent of Water/Sewer Department, retired after 30 years. 
Rocco Yentile, DPW Water/Sewer Foreman, retired after 35 years. Andre LaFave, 
DPW General Foreman, retired after 32 years and William Flaherty, DPW 
Equipment Operator, retired after 25 years. These men were dedicated 
employees and their expertise will be greatly missed. We wish them health and 
happiness in their retirement. 

In concluding my report, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the 
Police Department for keeping us informed during the winter months of the road 
conditions, between the hours of 3:00 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. weekdays, weekends 
and holidays and all various departments for their cooperation extended during 
the year. I would like to thank the Town Manager, the Assistant Town Manager 
and the Board of Selectmen for their support throughout the year. Last but 
not least, the employees of the Department of Public Works who made 1992 a 
very productive year, my sincere thanks and appreciation. 



Commission On Disabilities 

Of the seven available seats on the Commission, five are filled by the 
following: 

Phyllis P. Genetti, Chairman 
Laurence W. Curtis, Co-Chairman 
Lillian N. Brown 
Frank A. Botte 

Gerald R. Duggan, Board of Selectmen Liaison 

In 1992 the Wilmington Commission on Disabilities was predominantly involved 
in the implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) . Four of 
our Board members hold seats on the town's federally required ADA 
Implementation Committee with Assistant Town Manager, Jeffrey Hull, and 
Superintendent of Public Buildings, Roger Lessard, as the town's appointed ADA 
coordinator. 

The Commission hosted a two day training session held at the Town Hall for 
state certification of Community Access Monitors (CAM). The two days were 
spent learning Massachusetts Architectural Access Board's rules and 
regulations and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) non-discrimination 
regulations presented by staff of the Massachusetts Office on Disabilities. 
The training was very well attended by more than fifty regional building 
inspectors, municipal employees, business' representatives and disability 
advocates. 

With advances constantly being made in the field of computer technology and 
the like, the once non-affordable Xerox/Kurzweil Reader machine is now within 
the Commission's obtainable grasp for use in the Wilmington Public Library. 
This device will make the library's stock of books and periodicals (text in 
general) accessible to people who are blind or cannot adequately decipher the 
printed word. By electronically scanning a page in a book, it converts the 
scanned text into a synthesized voice. The reading speed is controlled and 
varied as well as the types of voices, such as a woman's, man's, child's or 
robot-like. A whispering voice is also available for, as one youthful 
potential user put it, when you are reading scary stories. 

Nineteen ninety-two marked one more step closer to full and equal access to 
Wilmington's public buildings (municipal and commercial). The West 
Intermediate School had a wheelchair lift installed making the second floor of 
this two-floor school accessible to all people with disabilities. 

The Commission members wish to convey the understanding that, people with 
disabilities are first and foremost people. All people have the equal right 
to access and utilize that which is made open to the public with reasonable 
accommodations provided for disabilities, no person can be segregated and/or 
alienated due to their physical, mental or sensory differences or inabilities 
and it is far less costly to support a disabled person's basic needs for 
independence in the community than it is to institutionalize him or her.

Wilmington Public Schools 



Wilmington High School 

The three or so year trend of more than 80% of our graduates going on to 
further training continues. Examples of institutions accepting our graduates 
include Boston College, Holy Cross College, The United States Naval Academy, 
Bentley College, Boston University, The University of Southern Florida, 
Merrimack College, Stonehill College, Suffolk University, Westfield State 
College, Blaine Hair Dressing School, Northern Essex Community College, 
Colorado School of Mining and the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. 

Although proud of our students' achievements and acceptances, we must express 
our concern about our projected ability to continue to prepare our youngsters 
for the above levels of involvement due to 1991-1992 budget limitations that 
found us losing five teachers and a total of twenty-five instructional 
sections in the areas of English, Social Studies, Mathematics, Foreign 
Language and Science. 

The just completed year, witnessed the development of a two-year report which 
is an integral part of the accreditation process which occurred in 1990. Its 
parts included a mandatory component outlining substantive changes in 
financing, personnel and programs that have happened since the visitation. 
Improvement recommendations in the accreditation report like (a) using 
standardized testing to assess how well our students are doing in the 
different areas, (b) developing a better defined multicultural underpinning 
and goals for our Social Studies area, encouraging research that would allow 
us to eventually introduce a technology education curriculum format and the 
development of interdisciplinary learning formats were additionally 
investigated throughout the year by study groups made up of teachers, parents, 
and administrators. 

Still another study group undertook the important task of fulfilling the 
accreditation team's recommendation to develop short and long range goals for 
prograim and staffing. Such a delineation is extremely important as it allows 
prioritizations of expenditures at budget time. No clearly set long range (K- 
12) school department plans have existed for at least the last nine years. 

The effort clearly revealed through comparison and by example, that we must 
upgrade our computer assisted instructional capacity if our youngsters are to 
be reasonably prepared for the future. For example, our main computer banks 
in Mathematics and Business are 10 to 14 years old. The computers that we do 
have are not networked for "distance learning" with colleges, universities, 
businesses, other school systems and even other lands and that kind of 
learning, ladies and gentlemen, is not extravagant. It is, instead, becoming 
traditional and it can even save money. We do not have enough up-to-date 
software that will allow us to teach all our youngsters systems like Word 
Perfect, Lotus, Microsoft, etc. before they graduate. Such proficiency in 
word processing is necessary for success in every aspect of life. A school's 
business department no longer exists to singularly prepare people to become 
secretaries. 

Townspeople should know further that school budget planning and enactment over 
the last two/three years did not provide any money for the purchase of 
textbooks and other consumables in English, Social Studies, Foreign Language 
and Mathematics leaving us with a real need to replace materials that are, in 
some cases, worn out, and others ten to fifteen years old, and still others 
obsolete. 

In the year just completed (1991-1992) our athletic teams were competitive 
with our Field Hockey, Basketball, Soccer, and Baseball teams qualifying for 
state level competition. Although a much smaller school than those we compete 
against our youngsters proudly never stop trying. 

Middlesex Community College affiliated with Wilmington High School in 1991- 
1992 by allowing our students to participate in their "2+2 program", which 
more specifically is involvement in certain of their courses for college 
credit at no cost to our students. We hope to maintain the above 
connectedness in the upcoming year and expect to develop an additional similar 



-94- 



type relationship with Merrimack College. That institution has, to its 
credit, reportedly allowed qualified high school students from neighboring 
communities to occupy available seats in classes for no charge other than the 
price of their texts. Both experiences, coupled with advanced in-house 
scheduling of the district's best 8th, 9th, and 10th grade students would 
allow the high school to offer what could fairly be termed a quality gifted 
and talented program. 

The Wilmington High School band, jazz rock ensemble and chorus under the 
direction of Miss Barbara Mette and Miss Lorraine Kalil performed admirably on 
many different occasions throughout the year. 

Mr. Matthew Joyce, and his senior honors English class, presented "Simply 
Speaking: The Joy of Language" a series of dramatic readings and verse 
honoring varied literary genre to a packed house in our recently refurbished 
auditorium. The evening was a real treat for many reasons not the least of 
which was the fact that it clearly reflected the magic of learning that can 
occur between a talented teacher and committed students. 

Our Special Needs Department continues to do an excellent job educating its 
unique young people with a new focus that we are calling "cooperative 
learning". The desired outcome of the above is to facilitate mainstreaming 
and the process used to achieve that end, places two teachers, one from 
regular education and one from special education in a reciprocally sharing 
arrangement in the saime classroom. An obvious benefit is that all the 
students in the class benefit from the instructional double attention. 

The disciplinary flavor of your high school continues to be predicated upon a 
belief that intellectual, aesthetic, and/or athletic excellence develops best 
in an ordered environment that emanates from a spirit of mutual respect of and 
among all concerned. 

We have all, students, parents, teachers, and administrators, done our best to 
make our community proud of our efforts, accomplishments, and reactions. 
Please know that we all will continue in the year ahead along that same path 
doing all we can to be all we can with the resources at our disposal. 

North and West Intermediate Schools 

The North and West Middle Schools continue to strive for excellence in middle 
school education. The middle school philosophy states that all children are 
capable of learning. Our curriculum has incorporated many changes in order to 
insure that this philosophy can be applied to every child. An example of this 
effort might be found in our cooperative teaching models at both schools. 
Teachers in regular and special education are performing in a cooperative 
fashion within the classroom. These teachers are teaming in a special way to 
better serve our student population. 

Four years ago both schools offered a very comprehensive curriculum to every 
grade 6-8 student. In recent years the middle schools have absorbed 16.4 
positional cuts to their program. These personnel reductions have greatly 
diminished the schools' effectiveness in educating the total child. The needs 
of the adolescent are many. Wilmington must ask itself the cjuestion, "Do we 
want excellence at the middle school level?" 

Each citizen should appreciate the incredible performance of the educators at 
the North and West. These professionals continue to strive for excellence. 
Their frustrations lie in knowing what has to be done and not having the 
resources to do it. 

Shawsheen School 

The Shawsheen School children, parents and teachers continue to show pride in 
their school and the programs offered to the children. The mission of the 
school is to create an exciting and challenging learning environment; one that 
will nurture the full range of knowledge, traditions and values of a 
multicultural society and one that will enable each child to develop the self- 
esteem, critical and creative skills, and personal and social management 
skills needed to live in a constantly changing world.

The Parent Advisory Committee presents to the children a program rich in 
diversity. Offering something each month in the manner of enrichment programs 
offered during the school day or after school for the entire family. The 
cooperative efforts of our Parent Advisory Council and its members have 
provided assistance to our teachers in the form of mini-grants and enrichment 
assembly programs for our students in the areas of language arts, music, 
science, and nutrition. In addition, a committee of parents is responsible 
for coordinating a six week after school program for students in grades 1-5 
and a Saturday morning kindergarten program in March. We acknowledge the fact 
that parents are our partners in education and appreciate the immeasurable 
ways in which they assist, advise, and support our efforts. 

Our fifth graders began the school year with a week-long trip to Nature's 
Classroom in Charlton, Massachusetts. Children attending Nature's Classroom 
live in dormitories with their teachers and participate in a program of 
education that takes place out-of-doors with lots of hands-on experiences. 

The motto adopted by the Shawsheen School students, "We Care, We Share, We 
Dare," seems to permeate the entire school day. The children not only care 
about one another and their environment, but have taken an active interest in 
providing for those less fortunate, as evidenced by their stocking stuffer 
drive for the American Red Cross and their cupboard donations for Wilmington's 
Food Pantry. Not only do our boys and girls share their material possessions 
with one another, they share their love of learning as well. Every week fifth 
grade students visit their second grade counterparts to share books and 
creative writings and to assist them with curriculum-related projects. It is 
indeed fortunate that our teachers provide the kind of learning environment 
for our students that encourages them to take risks without fear of failing 
and dare them to learn more than the minimum rec[uirements . 

Community growth is happening all through the Shawsheen School district. New 
streets with new houses and faunilies are springing up all around us. New 
children are enrolling on regular basis at the school. Class sizes are 
growing and the need for space to accommodate this growth is necessary.

The new reading program has been expanded to include the students in grades 
three and four. The Silver Burdett and Ginn program is now offered in grades 
one through four. 

Due to a recent grant submitted by the elementary principals, the latest 
edition of the D.C. Heath Math Program has been purchased for students in 
grades one through six. These materials were obtained at no cost to the Town 
of Wilmington and are based on the most recent national math standards. 

After a successful Math-A-Thon fundraiser was completed by the Parent Advisory 
Council, many hands-on supplement math materials were purchased. 

Recently, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges approved the 
five year follow-up report and the Wildwood School was commended for its 
commitment to the accreditation process. 

The students are participating in a writing incentive programi called "Wildwood 
Writes." A post office has been set up in the foyer of the school and all of 
the classrooms have been re-named with a street name and zip code. The 
students have been paired with students in different classrooms and are 
exchanging letters. Students sort the mail, stamp it and deliver the mail 
around the school to mailboxes which have been set up in each classroom. This 
activity provides another way of encouraging the students to write. This 
program has been met with a great deal of excitement from students and staff. 

Under the direction of Miss Kelley, the Extended Day Program is operating for 
a second year. This program provides before and after school care for all 
three elementary school students and is housed at the Wildwood. 

The fifth grade students were given the opportunity to attend Nature's 
Classroom, a week long environmental program, during the first week of 
October. The students and staff at the Wildwood teamed up with the Shawsheen 
fifth grade students and staff and experienced some interesting science and 
self-esteem activities at this nature camp. 

During the past year, the Wildwood Parent Advisory Council has approved 
several enrichment programs for the students at the Wildwood School. Some of 
the worthwhile programs include: Birds of Prey, Opera 101 1/2, Starlab, N.E. 
Aquarium Tidal Pool, Romp in the Swcunp. The students continue to enjoy these 
educational activities presented by these talented artists. 

The Wilmington Arts Council has given approval to grants funding field trips 
for first and fourth grades to the North Shore Music Theatre. The PAC's grant 
for "Romp in the Swamp" was also approved by the local Arts Council. 

Space continues to be at a premium, with every nook and cranny being utilized. 

WOBORN STREET SCHOOL^ 

This year was one of change for the students, parents and teachers at the 
Woburn Street School. Dolores Silva, the Principal of the Woburn Street 
School for the past"" fourteen years, retired after an illustrious career at the 
helm of the school. Kathleen Conway took over this responsibility in July. 
Ms. Conway has found this role to be exciting and rewarding working with 
staff, parents and students in the Wilmington community. 

Aims Workshop: This past summer eight teachers from the Woburn Street School, 
Jane Welch, Ann Mulak, Anne Keeler, Patricia Coffill, Anne Field, Sandy Proia, 
Cynthia Jones and Sandy Arciero, voluntarily participated in an AIMS Workshop 
for K-8 teachers. AIMS is the acronym for "Activities Integrating Mathematics 
and Sciences." The purpose of the AIMS program is to enrich the education of 
the students using a hands-on approach. The teachers are participating in 
self-directed after school sessions to explore and share ideas. 

The Arts: The art and music curriculum emphasized a multi-cultural approach. 
Students researched their ethnic backgrounds and studied different countries 
music, fine arts and crafts. Studying the arts through a multi-cultural 
approach has encouraged the students to excimine the world beyond their own 
community. Our Enrichment Program, sponsored by the Woburn Street School PAC, 
invited various artists, storytellers, and puppeteers to perform for the 
students. These performances expanded the students' cultural awareness. The 



-97- 



students in the fourth grade also visited the Peabody Museum in Salem for a 
tour of the Japanese and Hawaiian collection. 

The students participated in a variety of art contests including the Crayola 
Drecun Makers Program, Winchester Hospital/Health Center Calendar Contest, the 
Reading Municipal Light Company Poster Contest and the Massachusetts Audubon 
Society Poster Contest. 

Science: Mrs. Welch's third grade students studied the life cycle of the 
butterfly. This hands-on unit follows the complete metamorphosis, from the 
larva stage to the emergence of a beautiful butterfly. Throughout the unit 
the students learned to observe and record data. 

Mrs. Arciero's third grade class was awarded a mini-grant from the School 
Business Partnership. This grant enabled the students to visit a wolf 
preserve in Ipswich to view wolves, observe their behavior, and to listen to a 
fascinating presentation from the Wolf Hollow Staff. 

The students studied wolves and butterflies as part of their third grade 
science curriculum. Living Things Around Us. These activities not only 
addressed the science area, but also extended across the curriculum with 
writing, map skills, research, current events, world issues, math and artwork. 

Mrs. Caruso's fifth grade students studied vertebrates in their habitat as 
part of an endangered species unit. The students created dioramas and a 
contest was held to select the best entries. The lucky winners were Ryland 
Blackington, Eric Veator, Paul Casely, Katie Blair, Lindsay Bruno and Michael 
Carlson. 

Social Studies: Several third grade teachers developed a Social Studies unit 
on Boston. This unit encouraged students to explore and share information 
about Boston, its growth, economy, diversity, problems, culture and more. At 
the completion of their study, a field trip to Boston was made with visits to 
historical sites and the State House.

Special Education: Last year the special education and classroom teachers 
embarked upon a cooperative teaching effort. This involved whole class 
instruction using a team teaching approach. It was the initial attempt in 
moving toward an inclusionary model for special education students aimed at 
reducing classroom pull-out services. The cooperative teaching model was so 
well received by teachers, parents and students that it will continue this 
academic year. Currently Mary Ann Ablove, Jean Burke, Sandy Arciero, Linda 
Fasano, Anne Keeler, and Sandy Proia are involved in this project. This is an 
exciting venture and we plan to continue to expand into more classrooms and 
into varied areas of the classroom curriculum. 

Chapter I: This preventative reading progrsun serviced thirty students in 
grades 1-5. The program supplements the classroom reading instruction by 
reinforcing the skills taught in the classroom as well as incorporating a 
variety of materials and techniques to ensure that instruction is tailored to 
individual needs. Assessment of needs is an on-going process through the use 
of daily logs, monthly checklists, and behavioral checklists done three times 
per year. Parents are actively involved in the needs assessment, planning and 
evaluation of the program. Family involvement is maintained through Chapter I 
Fcunily Night progreuns at the school, newsletters and the Big Book program at 
home. 

Performing and Fine Arts 

The Performing and Fine Arts Department continues to serve all students in 
grades 1-8, as well as our very talented art, photography, band and chorus 
members in grades 9-12. The instrumental prograun for strings, winds, and 
percussion in grades 3-12 continues to grow and flourish. 

The choruses and High School band performed for the Town and civic 
organizations and the band took part in parades in Woburn and Lawrence. 
Several of our art students won coveted prizes in photography/art contests, as 
well as in the Globe Scholastic Art Competition. 

The year was eventful, successful and one in which the entire Performing and 
Fine Arts Staff can be very proud. They brought to each task true artistry, 
professionalism and dedication. 

SPECIAL Education 

During the last calendar year the Special Education Department received 146 
referrals for initial TEAM evaluations and provided special education and 
related treatment services to approximately 500 special needs students ages 3 
to 22. 

The department continued to review its policies and practices relative to the 
least restrictive programming and mainstreaming of special needs students in 
the School Department. To that end the department, along with each of the six 
principals, applied for and was awarded a federal grant to promote further 
mainstreaming activities in the Wilmington Public Schools. The grant entitled 
"Enhanced Mainstreaming Opportunities" sought to employ the methodology of 
cooperative teaching between regular classroom teachers and special education 
teachers. The grant was both a planning and an implementation grant. It 
provided monies to teachers at all six schools to conduct after school 
planning and communication necessary to implement the goals of this project. 
Planning activities took place at all Wilmington schools during December and 
January. Actual implementation commenced in late January and continued to the 
close of schools in June. The specific focus was on students who attend 
resource rooms. The goal was restructured from take-out resource room 
services to increased mainstreaming of special needs students in the 
classroom. The curriculum expertise of regular education teachers blended 
harmoniously with the special education staff's knowledge of students' 
learning styles and methods of curriculum modification. Approximately 550 
special needs and regular education students were serviced through this 
program and a total of 40 regular education and special education teachers 
participated in this grant. The findings of this grant were shared with the 
School Committee at the end of the school year and the School Committee, based 
on the positive grant findings, officially adopted the cooperative special 
education/regular education teaching program as an official model of service 
delivery in the school department.

READING /LANGn AGE ARTS DEPARTMENT 



Reading Basal Adoption: The Wilmington School Committee unanimously voted to 
adopt the Silver Burdett & Ginn 1991 World of Reading, Sterling Edition, as 
the town's reading program for grades K-6 in the spring of 1991. The program 
was implemented in grades K, 1, and 2 during the last school year and the 
adoption continued with the program's implementation in grades 3 and 4 during 
this school year. It is hoped that the adoption will be completed with grades 
5 and 6 as soon as it is economically feasible. 

The Chapter I Reading Parent Advisory Council held three general meetings 
during the school year. An inf oirmational meeting to provide parents of 
children in the Chapter I program with information regarding the procedures, 
purposes, and goals of the program was held at the Wildwood School in 
November. The winter meeting was held in January at the Shawsheen School and 
included the guest speaker, Dan Shaughnessy, sports columnist for the Boston 
Globe , as well as a performance by the Looking Glass Theatre for the children. 
At the conclusion of the evening an Ice Cream Smorgasbord was enjoyed by 
everyone in attendance. The final meeting was held in June with a 
presentation entitled, "Homework Without Tears", and the storyteller and folk 
singer, John Porcino. In May an "Authors' Tea" was held in each of the three 
elementary schools. Original writings by the Chapter I students were on 
display. Each child was presented with a special author's ribbon in 
recognition of the excellent stories that had been written. Parents from the 
advisory council, as well as Chapter I Reading Specialists, attended the 
Chapter I conference in Hyannis, where the Reading Specialists each served as 
a chairperson for one of the conference workshops. The PAC officers for the 
1991-1992 school year were: Patricia Parker, Chairperson; Anne Burns, Vice 
Chairperson; Doreen Smith, Secretary; Diane Casey, Comptroller; Peggy Mar, 
Newsletter Chairperson. 

Students in grades 5 through 8 participated in the Lowell Sun Spelling Bee . 
The individual "bees" were held in each of the elementary and intermediate 
schools. The winners of these individual spelling bees represented Wilmington 
in the Northern Middlesex Spelling Bee sponsored by the Lowell Sun and held in 
Durgin Hall at the University of Lowell in April. 

The Annual Summer Reading Program was held at the Wilmington Memorial Library. 
This annual program is co-ordinated as a joint effort between the library and 
the Reading Department. Children are encouraged to continue to read and enjoy 
books during the summer and to make frequent visits to the library. This 
year's theme was "Sports Summer" and many children participated in the progreim 
and the activities held at the library were well attended. 

School Foodservice Department 

The Wilmington School Foodservice Department has been very active and busy 
this year. Along with serving approximately 240,000 student meals and 14,000 
Senior Citizen lunches, we have been catering many activities. Our services 
have been called on to prepare, serve or supervise the National Honor Society 
Banquet, Music Department Awards Dinner, PAC Spaghetti Suppers and Breakfasts, 
and many Coffee Hours and Meetings. 

The staff has had an opportunity to participate in training programs presented 
by Massachusetts School Foodservice Association and the Bureau of School 
Nutrition Services, Department of Education. We have participated in 
Framingham State College Graduate Intern Program by having a student intern 
study under Wilmington's School Foodservice Program. We all were enriched by 
the experience. 

We are hoping for increased student lunch participation as well as Senior 
Citizen participation. We are retaining our status as a self-supporting 
department under very difficult economic times. It is increasingly difficult 
to continue this self-supporting status. We are being careful with food and 
supplies to conserve as much as possible and trying every possible means we 
can think of to increase lunch participation and catering services. 

We have implemented as many suggestions as possible and continue to seek-out 
new Ideas and possibilities to improve foodservice and always have an up-beat, 
current program for the students and other participants.

Physical Education and Athletics 



The Physical Education Department continued to serve all students (K-12), as 
well as providing an adaptive program for students with special needs. The 
program sponsors a physical education "Mile Club" to encourage physical 
fitness in grades 5 through 8. 

The health program in grades K-5, under the direction of Mrs. Laura Stinson, 
has incorporated "Project Charlie" into the curriculum. In grade 5 we offer 
the DARE program, in cooperation with the Wilmington Police Department and 
Officer James White. These prograuns emphasize the importance of drug/alcohol 
education through the teaching of self-esteem, responsibility and decision- 
making. 

The Physical Education Department cited several students for outstanding 
achievement in physical education:

Shawsheen Valley Regional Vocational 
Technical High School District 

Elected representatives of the Regional School Committee are: Anthony R. 
Mazzone and Mark Trifiro from Bedford; Kenneth L. Buffum, Vice Chairman, and 
Bernard Hoar, Secretary, from Billerica; John P. Miller, Treasurer, and Alfred 
Verrier from Burlington; Richard E. Griffin and J. Peter Downing from 
Tewksbury; and John Gillis, Chairman, and Michael Smith from Wilmington. 

As one of twenty-five regional vocational technical school districts in the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Shawsheen Valley Technical continued to offer 
comprehensive vocational/technical education for approximately one thousand 
thirty-seven high school students and sixty adults. Over five hundred adults 
participated in the Adult Education program; and over two hundred junior high 
school students participated in the after school Career Education program. 

Upon graduation, full-time students receive both a comprehensive academic high 
school diploma and competency certification in their chosen technical 
discipline. Over ninety-three percent of the June 1991 graduates either 
acquired jobs within their skilled professions or pursued higher education at 
various colleges. Despite the loss of over 400,000 jobs during the past two 
years in Massachusetts, Shawsheen 's actual placement rate of seventy-one 
percent of graduates in jobs represents a tremendous accomplishment. 
Shawsheen Valley Technical 's graduation placement statistics was the highest 
among the state's Regional Vocational Technical High Schools. 

The School Committee applauds the continued contributions of the three hundred 
area businessmen who serve on Shawsheen Valley Technical 's Advisory 
Committees. Advisory Committee members monitor each progrcun to guarantee 
curriculum and equipment are up to date insuring graduating students meet the 
needs of local businesses. 

Many activities took place during 1992 which deserve special recognition: 

* 1992 graduates were accepted at numerous colleges including: American 
International College; Brown University; Colby-Sawyer College; the 
Culinary Institute of America; Johnson and Wales; Massachusetts College 
of Art; Merrimack College; Northeastern University; Syracuse University; 
University of Massachusetts; Wentworth Institute of Technology; and many 
other local colleges. Other graduates received advanced credit and 
acceptance to technical articulated programs at Middlesex Community 
College and Northern Essex Community College. Over sixteen thousand 
dollars in scholarships was raised privately and distributed at the June 
1992 graduation ceremony. 

* Shawsheen Valley Technical held its first Honor Society Installation 
ceremony in May of 1992. Approximately five percent of Seniors and 
Juniors met the standards approved by the School Committee for 
membership to the Honor Society. Ms. Gail Poulten served as Honor 
Society Advisor. Mr. Richard E. Griffin, serving his seventh term as a 
member of the Shawsheen Valley Technical School Committee and Principal 
of the John Wynn Middle School in Tewksbury, was the guest speaker.

Shawsheen students actively participated in Billerica's "Yankee Doodle" 
celebration. The Construction Department provided numerous services, 
the Graphics Department designed and produced 20,000 brochures, the Peer 
Leaders coordinated participation of various technical programs in the 
parade, and the School District was recognized as a main sponsor of the 
event. The district looks forward to actively participating in this and 
other local events in all district towns for many years to come. 

Shawsheen Valley Technical continued Project Freedom, an after schoo] 
program allowing two hundred junior high school students the opportunity 
to explore six technology programs. This program was funded from a 
grant received from the Massachusetts Department of Education Division 
of Occupational Education. 

Shawsheen continued its participation as an active member of the 
Merrimack Valley Occupational and Tech-Prep Educators Collaborative. 
This collaborative is coordinated by the chief executive officers of 
five area vocational technical school districts and Middlesex and 
Northern Essex Community Colleges. It was formed two years ago to 
articulate acceptance and access for graduating seniors into related 
associate degree programs at the community colleges. Ninety-eight 
Shawsheen Valley Technical juniors and seniors are currently receiving 
advanced college credit for courses being taken while in high school. 
Forty-two Shawsheen graduates are currently enrolled in associate degree 
programs at the neighboring community colleges who received credits for 
courses taken at Shawsheen Valley Technical through Tech-Prep. 

Shawsheen 's Adult Technical Institute is currently offering a full-time 
program for adults for careers as biomedical electronic technicians. In 
addition, thirty adults are being retrained for new careers in the 
health medical equipment field. The Adult Technical Institute is funded 
through various grant programs and assesses no cost for its operation to 
member communities. Progreuns are designed with the important assistance 
from local business and industry representatives who are assisting 
Shawsheen to keep pace with new specialty skills necessary for gainful 
employment. Businesses interested in establishing needed training 
programs or adults who are either unemployed or underemployed should 
call Mr. John McDermott, Assistant Superintendent Director for Community 
Services at (508) 667-2111 for additional information. 

Over two hundred and fifty students participated in the Vocational 
Industrial Clubs of America yearly district, state, and national 
competitions. Nine Shawsheen Valley Technical students received state 
awards and participated in the national VICA competition held in June in 
Louisville, Kentucky. 

The District was selected as the most outstanding secondary program in 
the state as an "Automotive Center of Excellence." 

The Construction Department built a concession stand at Simonds Park in 
Burlington. The work was done by the Carpentry, Masonry, Electrical, 
and Plumbing Departments. In addition, interior repairs were completed 
at the Bedford Town center (used by Bedford senior citizens). In 
Tewksbury the Masonry and Carpentry Departments constructed two masonry 
concrete block storage buildings. The Carpentry Department constructed 
shelving for the Billerica Food Pantry. The Diesel and Heavy Equipment 
Department rebuilt a case tractor for the Town of Tewksbury. 

The Graphic Arts Department printed thousands of pamphlets, letters, and 
reports for member towns, school districts, and non profit 
organizations . 

Over three hundred students participated in the various interscholastic 
athletic programs offered by the school district. 1991 and 1992 League

The aforementioned highlights are documented as a snapshot of the dyneunic 
programs offered member communities by the imaginative professional staff 
employed at Shawsheen Valley Technical. Viewed by state-wide educators as one 
of the most comprehensive vocational technical secondary schools in the 
Commonwealth. The elected School Committee members remain committed to 
adequately prepare area youth for excellent employment opportunities for the 
twenty first century. 

Prospective students and residents are urged to contact the school's Guidance 
Department at (508) 667-2111 for additional information regarding the various 
career progrcuns offered to area residents. 

The District's continued success is a direct result of the support received 
from Town Administrators, Boards of Selectmen, Finance Committees, and 
citizens. We very much appreciate their cooperation and support.

ANNUAL TOWN MEETING - APRIL 25. 1992 
WITH ACTION TAKEN THEREON 



With a quorum present at 10:45 A.M. (151) James Stewart, the Moderator opened 
the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag. He then read the names 
of departed town workers who had passed away during the past year and a moment 
of silence was observed. He then introduced our newly and re-elected town 
officials and thanked those who had served and not been re-elected or those 
who chose not to seek election. 



The Moderator then started to read the warrant and was interrupted by 
Selectman Daniel H. Ballou, Jr., "I move that the Moderator dispense with 
further reading of the warrant and take up and make reference to each article 
by number." Motion seconded and so voted. 

ARTICLE 2: To hear reports of Committees and act thereon. Motion by Town 
Manager Michael A. Caira, "I move that the town vote to hear a report from the 
Sewer Financing Advisory Board as indicated in Article 4 of the Special Town 
Meeting of December 16, 1991." 

The Sewer Financing Advisory Board hereby submits an Interim Report on its 
activities. 



The Sewer Financing Advisory Board was established by the Town Manager per a 
directive of the Special Town Meeting of December 16, 1991. The Board was 
charged with reviewing the current funding methods for sewer extensions and 
making a recommendation for financing future expansion of the sewer system. 

The Town Manager, with the approval of the Board of Selectmen, appointed the 
following members: 



George R. Allan 
Noel D. Baratta 
George W. Boylen 
Anthony E. Krzeminski 
Michael Morris 
Paul Niman 



Joan L. O'Rourke 
Paul R. Palizzolo 
Paul Radochia 
Arthur F. Spear 
Ann L. Yurek 



Technical assistance is being provided by Michael Woods, Assistant Town 
Engineer. Legal assistance is being provided by Alan Altman, Town Counsel. 

The Board's first meeting was March 2, 1992. A total of three meetings have 
been held to date. 



The Board has reviewed the current betterment procedure and the funding of 
past projects. A survey of funding methods used by neighboring communities 
was completed. The town's Master Sewer Plan was discussed to give members an 
overview of potential future expansion. 

The status of past and future state and federal grant programs has been 
reviewed. Future construction is not likely to have the benefit of 90% 
federal and state grants, as did past projects. It is apparent that, given 



-108- 



the lack of federal and state grants, the current Betterment formula needs to 
be revised. Without these grants, approximately 50 percent of the 
construction cost will be borne by the abutters via betterments. This 
percentage is set by the legislation that authorized the town to construct a 
sewer system. 

Currently, the Board is studying various options for future projects, 
including tax rate, sewer rate and betterments. The Board recognizes the 
importance of public input and support for its final recommendations. In that 
regard, a Questionnaire is being distributed and a public meeting will be held 
in the future. 

Respectfully submitted. 

Sewer Financing Advisory Board 

Motion to accept report as read. Seconded and so voted. 

ARTICLE 3. To see if the town will vote to raise and appropriate a sum of 
money for the purpose of paying unpaid bills of previous years; or do anything 
in relation thereto. Motion by Michael A. Caira, "I move to pass over this 
article." Motion seconded and so voted to pass over. 

ARTICLE 4. To see if the Town will vote to authorize the Town Treasurer, with 
the approval of the Selectmen, to borrow money from time to time in 
anticipation of the revenue of the financial year beginning July 1, 1992, in 
accordance with the provisions of General Laws, Chapter 44, Section 4, and to 
issue a note or notes therefor, payable within one year, and to renew any 
notes therefor, payable within one year, and to renew any note or notes as may 
be given for a period of less than one year in accordance with General Laws, 
Chapter 44, Section 17; or do anything in relation thereto. 

Motion by Selectman Chester A. Bruce reads the same as above article, motion 
seconded and so voted. 

ARTICLE 5. To see how much money the town will appropriate for the expenses 
of the town and the salaries of several town officers and departments and 
determine how the Scime shall be raised, whether by taxation, transfer from 
available funds, or otherwise; or do anything in relation thereto. 

Motion by Paul R. Palizzolo, Finance Committee, "I move that the several and 
respective sums as recommended and presented by the Finance Committee be 
raised by taxation or by transfer from available funds and appropriated for 
the purpose set forth in Article #5, each department's budget to be taken up 
and voted on in the order they appear, subject to amendment, and each depart- 
ment's budget not open for reconsideration until the entire budget is voted."

TOWN OF WILMINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS 
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 
June 30, 1992 



Summary of Significant Accountlno Policies 

The accounting policies for financial reporting purposes of the Town of 
Wilmington conform to generally accepted accounting principles for local 
governmental units except as indicated in Note 2. The following is a 
summary of the significant accounting policies: 

A. Fund Accounting 

The Town reports its financial activities in several funds and one 
account group in order to comply with the limitations and 
restrictions placed on both the resources made available to the 
Town and the services provided. The various funds are grouped in 
the financial statements in this report into five generic fund 
types and two broad fund categories as follows: 

GOVERNMENTAL FUNDS 

General Fund - The general fund is the general operating fund of 
the Town. It is used to account for all financial resources 
except those required to be accounted for in another fund. 

Special Revenue Fund - This special revenue fund is used to 
account for the proceeds of the State and Local Fiscal Assistance 
Act and their expenditures as prescribed by the Office of Revenue 
Sharing. 

Special Revenue Funds - Others - This special revenue fund is used 
to account for the proceeds of specific revenue resources (other 
than general revenue sharing, expendable trust or major capital 
projects) that are legally restricted to expenditures for specific 
purposes . 

Capital Projects Fund - This fund is used to account for the 
purchase or construction of major capital facilities. 

FIDUCIARY FUNDS 

Trust and Agency Funds - Trust and agency funds are used to 
account for assets by the Town in a trustee capacity or as an 
agent for individuals, private organizations, other governments 
and/or other funds. These include expendable trust, non- 
expendable trust and agency funds. Non-expendable trust funds are 
accounted for in a manner that permits the periodic measurements 
of revenues earned, expenses incurred and/or net income in order 
to demonstrate maintenance of capital. Expendable trust funds are 
accounted for in essentially the same manner as governmental 
funds. Agency funds are custodial in nature (assets equal 
liabilities) and do not involve measurement of results of 
operations . 

ACCOUNT GROUP 

Long-Term Debt and Liabilities - Long-term liabilities expected to 
be financed from governmental funds are accumulated in the general 
long-term debt group of accounts. This account group is not a 
fund. It is only concerned with the measurement of financial 
position and, therefore, is not involved with a measurement of the 
results from any operations. 

B. Basis of Accounting 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared 
principally on the modified accrual basis of accounting. This 
method recognizes revenues when they become measurable and 
available. Expenses are recognized under this method as they are 
incurred. 



-136- 



Revenue Recognition - Property tax revenues are recognized when 
they become available. Available means then due or past due and 
receivable within the current period or expected to be collected 
soon enough thereafter to be used to pay lieUailities of the 
current period. 

All other revenues are recognized throughout the year when cash is 
received. Receipts during the sixty days immediately following 
the close of the fiscal year are also recognized as available 
revenue . 

In applying the susceptible to accrual concept to inter- 
governmental revenues, the legal and contractual requirements of 
the numerous individual programs are used as guidance. There are, 
however, essentially two types of these revenues. In one, monies 
must be expended on the specific purpose or project before any 
amounts will be paid to the Town. Therefore, revenues are 
recognized based upon the expenditures recorded. In the other, 
monies are virtually unrestricted as to purpose of expenditure and 
are usually revocable only for failure to comply with prescribed 
compliance requirements. These resources are reflected as 
revenues at the time of receipt or earlier if the susceptible to 
accrual criteria is met. 

Expenses - Expenditures are recorded during the year on a cash 
disbursement basis. In addition, as rec[uired by Massachusetts 
General Laws, disbursements made during the fifteen days 
immediately following the close of each fiscal year and which 
pertain to the prior year are recorded as warrants payable and 
expenses as of June 30th. 

Purchase orders outstanding at June 30th related to annual 
operating expenses are recorded as encumbrances and, accordingly, 
as a reservation of fund balances at that date. 

Deferred Revenue - Property taxes and other revenues that are 
measurable but not available have been classified as deferred 
revenue on June 30, 1991. 

Departures from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles 
For years prior to 1985, the Town presented its financial statements on 
the basis of accounting practices prescribed by the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts, Department of Revenue. These practices differed in many 
significant respects from G.A.A.P. 

During 1981, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts issued a revised uniform 
municipal accounting system entitled "U.M.A.S." The departures from 
G.A.A.P. under this revised system have been significantly narrowed. 
The Town has adopted a modified U.M.A.S. for its financial statement 
presentation for 1985. 

The significant departures from G.A.A.P. included in the Town of 
Wilmington's financial statements are: 

a. Retirement benefits are provided for a "pay-as-you-go" basis 
rather than an acceptable actuarial cost method (see note 5). 

b. General fixed asset acquisitions are recorded as expenditures at 
the time purchases are made rather than being capitalized in a 
general fixed asset group of accounts.
